Tuesdays at the Castle

The New Salem Elementary fourth and fifth grade AIG classes recently visited The Renaissance Festival as a follow-up to a novel study of Tuesdays at the Castle.

The Renaissance Festival is a 16th century European style art and entertainment... festival combining outdoor theater, circus entertainment, arts and crafts marketplace, a feast fit for royalty, and more.

The students experienced the clashing of armor and the thundering of hooves of a full combat joust at the King's Tournament Arena.

The combination of entertainment and educational activities at the Festival helped give the students a proper perspective of what a marketplace celebration in the Renaissance Era was like.
