Product Description
I teach Myths and Legends but this would work for any student grades 7-12 after studying King Arthur, Robin Hood, or the Middle Ages. The project asks students to create a coat of arms that represents their understanding of Arthurian legend ideals. There are two websites mentioned on the handout that direct students to sites where they can research color symbolism, shield shapes, shield divisions, and image symbolism. In addition to creating a coat of arms, kids develop a 2-5 word motto that reflects the Arthurian beliefs. This is a fun learning activity that I have the kids complete in pairs. At the end, I have the kids present to their peers and then we vote for the shield and motto which "best represents the Arthurian ideal." Somehow adding the element of competition always gets the kids to engage more!
