This file includes a few things:
1. A 23-slide powerpoint presentation in full color/visuals that depicts what feudalism is, the reasons that it developed in both Japan and Europe, how it was organized in Japan and Europe, as well as how the social classes were distributed.
2. Note-taking sheet that follows the powerpoint topics divided in half in a chart to easily compare Japan and Europe
3. A note-taking strategy to be filled out by the kids with the pyramids for the social classes... You can have them use the whole sheet or cut them out for an interactive notebook.
4. A template for a double bubble (or venn diagram) so that students can compare and contrast their information between the two societies
The only thing that is missing is a handout that I found online called "Japanese and European Feudalism" by The Center for Learning (World History, Book 1, Lesson 19, Handout 37). Since its copy-righted I cant include it in the zip folder, but a simple google search can get you a copy. I have the students read and annotate this for similarities and differences between Feudal Japan and Feudal Europe. Direction for this activity are included in the powerpoint.
I use all these sheets in my Interactive notebooks for World History so they were designed with this in mind.
