This assessment packet provides effective assessment of key concepts, people, and events especially during the last two hundred years of the Middle Ages. The exploration and trade of Europe, China, and West Africa (Songhai and Timbuktu) are primary topics.
The packet includes: a list of study topics, including a blank map; a standard test version; a modified test version (with fewer answer choices) to meet individual student needs; and an answer key.
Students will answer questions about vocabulary as well as the following people:
Vasco da Gama
Students will also apply basic geography skills by identifying exploration routes drawn on a world map. Additional open-ended responses (short-answer questions) are included for use if desired.
