Hear Ye! Hear Ye! You will be travelling back in time to the Middle Ages! Choose a role (craftsperson, serf, knight, lady, etc.) that you would like to find out more about. You will research their role in society. Find out what they ate, how they dressed, what type of house they lived in, etc… You will then make a video of yourself (in character) and present it to the townspeople (a.k.a. our class). Bring it in on a device, USB stick, or email it to me.

Parent Signature______________________________________________

You will be evaluated in these subjects:

Part 1: Research - Use these questions to guide your research.

  • What did they do? How did they learn their job?

  • Was their job important? Who did it help?

  • What was everyday life like? Home? Food? Clothing?

  • What was their family life like? Did they take care of their own children?

  • Was life easy or difficult? Was this person important in society?

Part 2: Script

You will use your research notes to write a short script for your presentation

Part 3: Presentation - Length – about 2 minutes

Use this guideline to help you prepare for your presentation…

You will need the following…


  • Your costume should NOT be purchased – instead, make imaginative use of clothing and materials available in your home (robes, towels, old Halloween costumes, cardboard for a shield/sword, etc…)

  • You will wear the costume during your presentation


  • Use pretend items that would have been used by the person you are portraying and explain why and how they would have used it (Ex. Wooden spoon for a cook, keys for a black smith, etc.)

Cue Cards

  • You will write a script outline on your cue cards

  • Your script outline will remind you of the topics you are going to talk about and the order

  • Do not to read from your cue cards – use them as a guide for your presentation (Tip: You should sound like you are talking, not reading…)
