Once again, Stony Plain Central’s grade 8 Social Studies classes have succeeded in hosting a Renaissance Faire to showcase the learning they have done in the first term. Groups learned about the types of food, clothing, religion, crime and punishment, blacksmithing, science, music, art and many other areas of Medieval and Renaissance life. Here are some pictorial examples of what was on display:
These girls created their own blacksmith booth that included tools as well as armour that they had created.
One of my students dressed as a Catholic Priest and went throughout the Faire “preaching” to the visitors.
These young men created a display on Knights and Nobles and used creative means to dress the part.
Our Jester moved throughout the Faire and performed a juggling act and comedy show.
This was the center of punishment for crimes during the Faire. Criminals were placed in the stocks and rotten “vegetables” were thrown at them.
These girls represented the Merchant Class. They made crafts and products and then sold them to visitors at the Faire.
Nate created his own armour out of cardboard.
One of te students played Renaissance music on her recorder and also moved around the Faire playing the tambourine.
