Are you an elementary teacher or a homeschooler looking to do a unit study on the Middle Ages? It can be difficult to sort through the stacks of books at your local library or bookstore to find the best ones. After immersing myself in the Middle Ages to create my Middle Ages: A Time Travel Unit Study I decided to rustle up some good books. Here are my recommendations for great reads to supplement your studies of the Middle Ages.
A Medieval Feast
Great for a younger audience, this book has beautiful illustrations as it explores life in a castle as a feast is prepared for the nobility.
Castle Diary: The Journal of Tobias Burgess
Students get a glimpse at castle life through the eyes of an 11 year old boy as they read his journal entries. A good look at everyday life through a narrative form.
Eyewitness Books: Medieval Life
Though a more pricy option Eyewitness books are always a good investment. With a nice balance of text to images. This book provides general information about life in the Middle Ages with high quality artifact and recreation photos to bring the time period to life.
