This is a great resource to teach your students about coat of arms and is perfect for your Medieval Times unit. It includes a handout that explains the purpose of a coat of arms. The assignment is laid out into 7 simple steps. Students will create a coat of arms using animals, symbols, colours and a motto that represent themselves or their family. A small image and meaning is included with each animal, symbol and colour. Students can choose from 2 different shield shapes. Finally, they will write a short paragraph to explain their choices. The coat of arms for Ontario is included in the handouts as an example, however, students may benefit from seeing a variety of examples that can easily be 
found on the Internet.

Included with this activity are student handouts, worksheets and a rubric for assessment.

And it does not end there.  You get all the following downloads that will stretch learning across the curriculum and throughout the year!
