Why was the Medieval Church so powerful? – Boardgames project

This four-hour unit helps students to understand why religion was so important in the Middle Ages. This leads neatly into a study of the Cathars and the Reformation. Students study why the Church was so powerful in the Middle Ages. They conduct a card-sort exercise, have a game of charades, then work in pairs and groups to start design their boardgame (detailed advice is provided on the different types of boardgames that exist).
