Hands-on Anglo Saxons Unit Study for Homeschoolers

anglo-saxon-unit-study-1

Just gathering all my Anglo-Saxon posts into one place to make finding them a bit easier.  This was a very hands-on unit study, with lots of resources, map making and activities.  The children carried out some literature work based on Beowulf, and created a Beowulf newspaper.  The study culminated with the children giving a fabulous presentation of all they had learnt.
