Mary Queen of Scots

If you've got a child interested in the saga of Mary, Queen of Scots, send them to the BBC. Their game Burgh Life in Mary's Time is informative and fun. There are four sections to a quiz that must be completed before entry to the castle is allowed.

To explore what the BBC has for kids, go to their History for Kids page, and from there you can Walk Through Time, find out what life was like for Children in WWII, or discover the world of Ancient Rome.

The activities are for kids ranging in age from 4 to 14, so parents should check first to what difficulty level is presented.

    Thanks for visiting! I've bookmarked RauscousRoyals.com -- a quick look shows me how interesting it is. My 12 year old daughter really enjoyed reading Elizabeth I, Red Rose of the House of Tudor, part of The Royal Diaries series by Kathryn Lasky.
