This book helps teach students about medieval times. It begins with the barbarian invasions of Europe that resulted in the fall of the Western Roman Empire, and it concludes with the events that led to the Renaissance. Students will enjoy reading and learning about such high-interest topics as feudalism, knighthood, castle life, legends and myths, medicine, the Crusades, and the Black Death. Each activity sheet presents clear and concise information and then tests students' understanding with a variety of objective, subjective, and critical thinking questions and activities. Page 28 may be used as a review or to assess students' knowledge of medieval times.
