Based on a three-year collaboration with elementary school instructors, this paper discusses a creative approach to introducing younger students to the historical aspects and unique structure of the medieval book as a physical object. Through incremental activities, students learn to contextualize primary sources in both original and digital surrogates through the use of medieval manuscripts. The methods outlined can be repurposed for use with a variety of subject areas.
