I have to do a project where I make an A-Z vocabulary book on a science or social studies unit for 3rd graders. I'm wondering if the Middle Ages would be an appropriate topic for that?
Of course, we won't be going into the social impacts of the plague or the inordinate number of children killed by chickens setting cradles on fire (this was a major problem, according to some reading I've done), it would be age appropriate. It just has to be vocabulary words. I'm thinking serf, vassal, guild, herald, chivalry...that sort of thing, I just need 26 of them.
Any other ideas? I was also thinking of doing something about mammals or ocean life, but I already know a lot about medieval Europe and have plenty of resources.
