Hands-on history projects don’t always have to be complicated and time-consuming. Thank goodness! Here’s our Assyrian siege tower we made to go along with chapter sixteen in Story of the World, as suggested in the Activity Guide. The Assyrian soldiers would build ramps out of dirt next to city walls and then push the towers on wheels up the ramp. (That’s a battering ram out front.)
And that’s an archer inside.
Armed with a banana. 🙂
This of course led to various designs of ramps and towers and whatnot.
Lego tower = easy history activity!
