About Knights and Castles

Look back to medieval times by learning all about the chivalric orders of knights and the castles that dotted the landscape of the time. Essentially an eBook, this app also includes some interactive elements, some simple games and the facility to easily search through it.

Knights and Castles Review

Encyclopedia Britannica has many apps for mobile devices geared at teaching children about important topics in social studies and science. Upper elementary schoolers looking to explore history will love Knights and Castle. This comprehensive resource includes articles, games, quizzes and multimedia that will support children as they dig into this history topic.
This app contains eight traditional encyclopedia articles on topics including “History of Castles,” “Life as a Knight,” and “The Middle Ages.” Each article has images with captions and bold words that children can tap to see the definition. There are dozens of pictures and videos for elementary school students to explore, as well as an interactive map.
Kids will love how this interactive textbook lets them learn about history with a tap and swipe of their Android device as opposed to a traditional textbook. The standard educational content is intermixed with a quiz and lots of different games. Kids can play a memory match, jigsaw puzzle and magic square to reinforce what they’ve learned.
