There were not a lot of activities on The Pardoner's Tale on TPT, so I created this to give students background information on medieval society and The Canterbury Tales.
After they have read the tale, I showed a powerpoint presentation and had them take notes. I made the powerpoint from this website (which is a free product!): http://www.deadlysins.com/sins/
Then I had students recall events from the story that demonstrated the seven deadly sins. Since the storyteller is suppose to be a "holy man," this helped them connect to the background of the tale and the storyteller, and how it related to the morale of the story.
