Famous Figures of Medieval Times
In government schools, history tends to be a read-only subject. Thankfully, however, your home-schooled children have options. If you have a child who dreads reading but loves art and drama, the Famous Figures series is the perfect history supplement for her.

Each meticulous Famous Figures of Medieval Times illustration is based on authentic mosaics, paintings, and sculptures. Easy-to-assemble colored characters are printed on heavy cardstock with perforated pages for trouble-free removal. Cut out the figures, punch holes where directed, attach some common fasteners, and your Famous Figures of Medieval Times are ready to take center stage as your child reenacts the age of castles and conquest.

If your student is an avid artist, she will be pleased to discover that a colorable version of each figure is also included on the same sturdy cardstock. Fill in each Medieval figure with hues as realistic or exotic as you wish.

Famous Figures of Medieval Times includes figures of Justinian I, Theodora, Richard I (The Lionheart), Charlemagne, Leif Eriksson, Joan of Arc, Marco Polo, Francis of Assisi, Genghis Khan, and William I (The Conqueror). A detailed biography section provides key information about the medieval characters. A companion reading list for each figure is included for parent/teacher read-alouds and independent readers.
