Famous Figures of Medieval Times

The age of castles and conquest, monks and mystery comes to life as William the Conqueror rushes to Hastings, ready to reclaim his crown from Harold and the Saxons. The Normans are victorious in this famous battle of 1066 wearing chain mail and carrying kite-shaped shields. Hundreds of years later, a young girl clad in armor and flying her own standard courageously leads an army to take back France for the king. Joan of Arc is later captured, is sold to England, and loses her life as the result of an unfair trial.

Now, children age 6 to 12 can make movable action figures and relive the memorable events of the Middle Ages with Famous Figures of Medieval Times: Movable Paper Figures to Cut, Color, and Assemble. The book includes a short biography of each of the ten historic figures from Justinian I to Joan of Arc. A companion reading list is included for parent / teacher read-alouds and independent readers. Meticulous illustrations are based on authentic paintings, and sculpture. Each character comes in easy-to-assemble colored and colorable versions printed on heavy card stock with perforated pages. A letter key is printed on the back of each figure for simple assembly. Punch and fastener packs are available.
