This PowerPoint is to be used in conjunction with a quick simulation about feudalism. The PowerPoint runs through the various social roles of the Zhou Dynasty. It includes visuals and notes for the students are in red font. The way that the m&m simulation works is each student starts the lesson with 10 m&m's. I was very strict about not letting the students touch them until the end of the period. I cut up role pieces for my students and randomly distributed them. Each time a social group was presented the students of that group have to pay taxes. PowerPoint lies out who and when, and you will be sure to have some pretty upset peasants in your classroom!
