Make Your Own Medieval Village

Middle Ages Unit Study: We made a medieval paper village.

Medieval towns are known today for their half-timber houses, watch towers, and village walls. As part of our Middle Ages Unit Study we constructed a medieval village. This project is excellent because in addition to covering history, it works the fine motor skills and kids learn to visualize how two-dimensional objects can be transformed into 3D. Engineers often use this technique when constructing parts from sheet metal and other flat materials.

A similar template to the one we used can be obtained by emailing Wesen's Art Blog.

 The houses were cut out, folded into shape and then fastened together with tape.
