Middle Ages The Life of a Peasant By: Johnny House Wake up in the morning in my little cottage. I get dressed in my smelly and dusty rags. I need to eat a lot of bread and wheat this morning. What do u think i am going to do today? Maybe I am going to cook, take care of people, or prepare food. I need to get going. "What would you like me to do today?" I asked my king. I want u to prepare food today. "Ok",the peasant said. Walking back to the kitchen I thought maybe I can sneak out and have some fun at church. Peasants never

have fun. I am not going to be a bad peasant and try to sneak out. But, I actually kind of like being a peasant.

COME ON in to Johnny's Trade Fair!!!!!!!! We have sheep for just \$4.00 each!!!!! WOW that just awesome!!

Good Citizens of King Arthur's Kingdom, our king has a made a very important announcement that he will be choosing an heir to replace him. The heir must be able to solve a royal mystery. We will see if you have the knowledge to replace King Arthur. The clues center around shapes. Read on to determine how to use what you know about shapes to solve this unique mystery!

Go around the castle and look for these clues. Find things that look like a cube, square pyramid, triangular pyramid, rectangular prism, triangular prism, cylinder, and cone. See how many flat faces, corner points, faces & points, straight edges, and then do faces + points - edges. Let's see if you can solve the puzzle and become the new heir.
