A Child's Day In Elizabethan England

History comes alive for your students as they travel back in time to the reign of Queen Elizabeth I (1558 - 1603).

Focusing on the English daily life of the child, and using a method
known as First Person Representative Interpretation, costumed presenters research, create, and portray an individual in Elizabeth's England with no knowledge of modern life.

With interactive discussions on family, clothing, and work of varying social classes, as well as a selection of music, dance, crafts, and games, students are drawn into the same time frame as the Presenter to experience many of the daily aspects of living in England during the reign of Elizabeth I.

Presentations are designed as an additional resource for educators in schools, libraries, home school groups, and can be adapted to many venues. Any age group can be accommodated. Contact the Shrew for availability and prices.
