To kick off learning about the Middle Ages, several sixth grade classes were visited recently by a Viking knight, Sir Bailey. The sixth graders learned all about what it meant to be a knight during the Viking times, what they wore, weapons that they used, and what their lives were like. It was so interesting to have a visitor from the past to bring history alive!
