This bundled product contains informational text and fun activities for your unit on Medieval Astrologers and Astronomers. What did astrologers and astronomers do during the Middle Ages? At the time, not a lot was known about space. There was a lot of confusion and controversy about the universe. There was a lot of superstition when it came to understanding the movement of the planets. Astronomers and astrologers spent their time studying stars, making predictions and trying to learn about the solar system and universe.
