Medieval Knights were mounted warriors who went to battle and fought for their Lords. Knights came from wealthy families and it was considered a high honor to be a knight. To become a Knight, training began as young as 7-years old. A boy would become a PAGE, a Page would become a SQUIRE and a Squire would become a KNIGHT.
Knights in the 12th and 13th century wore shiny armor when they went to battle. At first they rode with chainmail but this evolved to plates of metal for better protection.
I asked one of my brave kiddos to share a bit of research on just how one can become a knight... so they got to hear from a classmate instead of from me 😁
Take a look as they draw and paint a jousting knight set against a medieval backdrop!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
