Come explore the world of Arthurian legends! This interactive workshop will guide students through some of the most famous legends as well as two of the primary symbols in the legends (the Round Table and Excalibur). Through webquests and reading and class discussion, we will examine the mythical and historical aspects of the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. In addition to reading and examining historical artifacts, students will work through a guided creation of their own quest for knighthood. They will create a character, setting, and quest for their character to complete.
Course is designed for middle school but upper elementary with a strong reading ability would also benefit from it.
