A good little activity to get the pupils stimulated whilst learning about the Middle Ages. Medieval words, such as 'borough', 'relic', & 'tourney' will have them question the meanings of the words, to which the teacher can easily answer.
If the teacher isn't familiar with the words, they're all featured in standard dictionaries.
This activity isn't full-lesson material, it is merely a short and fun little word search.
Students can group together and, with the help of a dictionary, find the definitions for each word, and write them down. A good little game is to pair the pupils into groups, and the first group to find all the meanings, wins the game.
