Anderson, Luci and Scot Anderson. “Medieval Times Club.” After school club lesson plans. University of Nebraska-Lincoln, 2020.


The Medieval Times club digs into European history that is often passed over in the classroom. We will talk about knights, dragons, chivalry, castles, and peasants. Popular myths like King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table and Beowulf - a story that partially inspired the Lord of the Rings - will be discussed. We will also examine some of the larger themes of the Middle Ages, including the Holy Wars, the Roman Empire, the Church, and pagans.
