Distance Learning
Grade level : 
2 to 5

In these teacher materials, and also during the videoconference, students will be introduced to noble life in the Middle Ages through arms and armor, courtly, and religious objects in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art.  Students will learn about the role of a knight in the social structure of Medieval and Renaissance Europe, and that a noble’s arms, armor, and castle served more than a military function.
