Another very cool day teaching! To finish up our unit on Sir Thomas Mallory’s Morte D’ Arthur, we built castles and knocked them down!
First, Jesse and I brought a bunch of our old moving boxes to school. The boys and girls, on different teams, divided up the boxes one by one.
Next, each team arranged their boxes into a “castle”, the design of which was entirely up to them (the kids have been planning this for weeks. The Girls Team even “accidentally dropped” a “fake plan” of what their castle was going to look like in order to “trick” the boys!).
Their mission? To protect their victim– one of Gregory’s stuffed animals.
