This is a short two page reading on how the actions of Charlemagne dividing the land among his greatest warlords into fiefs and the constant Viking raids helped contribute to the development of feudalism. Product is meant for students to actively read with ample space for students to summarize, visualize, question and highlight with purpose.
Afterwards I have students focus on paragraphs 4,5 and 6 and draw a visual representation of feudalism. We hamburger fold it and glue it into our notebooks for future reference. A Common Core activity for certain and a good read. Thank you.
