Art/Social Studies Lesson: Coats of Arms

The boys wanted to buy shields and swords in the gift shop at Cardiff Castle. Better yet, we came home and they made their own. This was their art project this week, also made the social studies connection by learning about coats of arms. Justin’s shield says “I am fast, furious, and dangerous.” Jordan’s says, “Hear the roar of my guitar.” In honor of the Normans, we wrote the mottos in french.

They can now beat on each other with sticks. When Justin gets tired, I step in. Jordan relishes the chance to whack me.
