Sixth graders get a trip back in time

April 29, 2008

Albany-  The lords and ladies of Deerfield Windsor's 6th grade classes traveled back in time for a lesson in medieval history.

Students read the story of King Arthur, and Tuesday got a chance to live it.

Covenant Presbyterian Church was transformed into a castle and sixth graders were served lunch medieval style, meaning no utensils. They dined on roasted turkey legs, bread, cheese, fruit, and ginger ale, while the lesson continued.

"Women they would become ladies from their singing or their needlework and most girls were married by the age of 12 so really if you weren't married by the age of 14 you were called an old maid," said Marli Collier, a sixth grader.

Luckily times have changed. Students were also taught about a Coat of Arms and what different colors meant to different families.
