Product Description
This lesson introduces students to life under a feudal arrangement. In the most simplistic terms, feudalism was a land-for-allegiance arrangement. Kings would give revenue-producing land to lords in exchange for a promise to raise an army and protect the land. Lords would subdivide their land to knights, and all would have peasants work the land. Therefore feudal life in Europe can be best represented in the shape of a pyramid: kings least numerous at the top and peasants most numerous at the bottom. The research portion of the assignment is very straight forward; it is designed to give the students some initial background information on each of the four feudal classes. Before they get started on the research, however, you are going to take them through a simulation which replicates the process of a feudal economy. While the system is patently unfair, keep in mind that at the time is was a mutually beneficial system for all parties involved. The critical thinking question at the end of the simulation will ask the students to think about this.
