An Illumninated Day Planner

Current Exhibitions

The exhibition The Medieval Scriptorium was designed for kids and families and focuses on the working method of artists in the Middle Ages (about A.D. 500–1500), when books were written and copied by hand. Use our Web presentation about the exhibition to explore medieval books from the Museum's collection and enjoy hands-on worksheets, videos, and more.

After exploring the Web site, adapt the lesson "Looking at Illuminated Manuscripts: An Illuminated Day Planner" and work with your students in grades 6–12 to examine the contents of a book of hours and then compare it to the modern day planner. Students can then create class day planners or calendars for 2010 with illuminations that correspond to modern holidays and seasons.

View the lesson "Looking at Illuminated Manuscripts: An Illuminated Day Planner."
