Product Description

Bring feudalism and the Middle Ages closer to home with this research and analysis activity regarding the board game "Chess". Students will analyze the game play, board set up and rules of the game of chess to make inductive reasonings regarding what each piece may tell us about the power structure of the middle ages. An excellent preview or supplemental activity perfect for kick starting a week on a Monday or wrapping up a long week on a Friday. I've used this for many years with my world history students and have never been disappointed.
