Robin Hood

This was a great study of Robin Hood with lots of variety! We enjoyed exploring The Middle Ages including occupations, weapons and much more, Archery, leg and arm bones and the Crusades. We then took a look at the characters in Robin Hood as well as the conflicts within the story.

We used this book from The Baldwin Project:

Robin Hood brought up many great ways to explore those critical thinking questions that there is no easy answer to as we walk in our Christian faith. Was Robin Hood a hero or was he just a thief? Despite King John’s terrible treatment of the people, were Robin Hood’s Merry Men justified in their actions? Should we cheer for outlaws?

This was a great opportunity to take a break from “regular school” and just spend some time with Robin and his Merry Men!!
Blessings!
