Alexander Montessori School Fifth Graders traveled back in time to learn about the 16th Century "Renaissance" at the Annual Florida Renaissance Festival (Quiet Waters Park, Florida). February 12, 2018, was a day of "edutainment" as the school-day program brought 16th Century Europe to life with costumed performers, stage acts, and craft vendors. Jousting knights, a blacksmith, a culinary, an apothecary, and encampment demonstrations informed and entertained the students. It was the perfect prelude to our own Kingdom of Alexander Middle Ages Faire, which will be held in late April 2018.
