Layers of Learning Unit 2-8 begins with the feudal system, knights, chivalry, and the Magna Carta.  Then we go into what medieval life was like: fairs, trade routes, clothes, food, and what it meant to be a peasant.  The geography section has a country study of Germany that explores the map, crafts, food, and culture.  Then in science, we continue learning about the human body with muscle, skin, and cardiopulmonary systems.  Last, in art, we’ll learn about the famous Giotto as well as medieval paints, rose windows, architecture, and cathedrals.  Every unit has activities for a variety of ages so your whole family can learn together.
