Build a Model Siege

  • Build a cardboard model of a Roman siege

    The aim of this project is to teach children some history with a fun activity which will stimulate more creativity and enquiry. In the case of younger children, it will be an activity involving parents. The subject need not be a military one - this kit could just as easily be ‘Build a Tudor Banquet’ (featuring a hall with servants, guests, food, entertainment etc.) or ‘Build a Row of Victorian Shops’ (with a row of buildings selling an array of goods, with shopkeepers and customers). The kit comprises: one history page, two kit pages and some simple instructions (not shown here). The models are designed to be simple to construct.
