Cardboard Medieval Castle - Free Software

More on castles! In the Middles Ages, a castle served as fortress, a residence for nobility and as a means of preserving the rigid social hierarchy of the times.

Make your own model medieval castle -- a learning activity that teaches about history, feudalism and life in the Middle Ages -- with free educational software at YourChildLearns.com. It's got towers, a gatehouse and a keep. You'll understand how an army lay siege to a castle, how a castle was defended, or what it might be like to live in a castle (though this varied by who you were).

Materials and Tools You'll Need: Scissors, tape or glue, markers or crayons, paper, a PC with printer and Build a Medieval Castle free software.

Extra Materials that Would be Helpful: a large piece of paper or cardboard or several sheets of paper fastened together to go underneath the castle; paper clips to hold parts together during construction; toothpicks and colored paper to make pennants to put on the towers; index cards.
