Humanities 8 Gingerbread Manor Project

Ms. Samson’s Humanities 8 class were learning about the feudal manor with a chance to construct a manor out of gingerbread just in time for the holidays. What an engaging way for a students to learn about the feudal system of land ownershp in small groups. They explored and presented information on the lord and manor, the transportation system and the life of the serfs and peasants.  What better way to engage students in the ways of medieval life than with gingerbread and candies.  This was a very engaging project that students were proud to present.
