Use "Build a Medieval Castle" to build a model castle, complete with towers, gatehouse and keep. There are further instructions for adding a drawbridge, portcullis, banner, etc. Detailed instructions include a discussion about why a castle was built the way it was--defense, food storage, people in and around the castle necessary to maintain it, and the social structure (hierarchy) of people who lived in the castle or around it.
