Posted 11/07/2016 10:51AM

CDS fourth-graders began a study of the feudal system of the Middle Ages. Students embarked on a simulation where students assumed different roles on a manor. The serfs learned they were tied to the land and could not ever leave. They were given food token, however, they had to hand over the majority of their food tokens to the lord, who in turn guaranteed protection. The knights bowed before the King and Queen showing their respect and loyalty. The lords stood before the King asking for land. After the simulation, students generated a plethora of questions to answer through more research. #CDSlearns
