Students create their own coat of arms in this medieval heraldry project. Students will have an opportunity to ask the family questions about their history, values, and professions in order to create a family shield, or coat of arms.
I used this project in US History as a European history background lesson as to what factors led to European exploration of the Americas.
Students liked to create a product, use artistic skills, and learn about their family.
I print these pages and give them directly to the students as-is. The rubric. all directions and resources are included.
