  Discovering the Middle Ages

Wednesday, April 25, 2018 / 2:00 PM – 4:30 PM
Recommended for 4th – 12th grades

Is it fair to identify the Middle Ages as the “Dark Ages” or is the time period just getting a bad rap? Let your students make the call as they become detectives and examine hands-on “evidence”.   After taking a careful look at arguments for/against the label “Dark Ages”, students will discuss their opinions using evidence to support their point of view.  Although our museum galleries do not house medieval artifacts, the exhibits will come into play when students complete a gallery investigation guide that draws comparisons between American history and the Middle Ages.  The program concludes with a live performance by one of the Frazier’s talented actor/teaching artists.
