Investigating European Geography at the End of the Middle Ages Mapping and Timeline Activity helps students understand the geographic impacts as the continent transition from the Middle Ages into the Renaissance.
This mapping activity guides students through mapping the physical features and significant places of the Middle Ages and Renaissance with an introductory reading, guiding questions, mapping tasks, and a mapping & timelining activity to review the Middle Ages or move them into the Renaissance.
Students can use an atlas with a physical map of the region or online sources to complete the activity.

Created for use leading into a unit on the Renaissance, and is included in my Renaissance and Reformation Complete Unit, but could be used for any geographic study of the region.
Would also be a great refresher activity for a European AP class!
