Activity Warm-up • If you were a serf living in medieval Europe, how would you respond to news that you were no longer obligated to work for the lord of your manor and were free to leave? Where would you move to improve your quality of life?

Mapping Europe • Today you will work in pairs to map eight different regions of Europe identifying important physiographic features using the maps that you find in the blue Human Legacy book (R40-R41). • Your partner is the person sitting next to you.

• There are eight regions labeled A-H in student handout 1.1C DO NOT WRITE ON THIS PACKET!!!!! • For each region A-H you will complete the following: 1. Read each mapping question and write your answer on a separate piece of paper. Then label the different physiographic features on your blank map using the key provided. 2. Examine the historical picture of the city and label the city on your map. 3. Plot and connect the city’s population data on Student Handout 1.1B • When you have finished a region bring student handouts 1.1A and 1.1B to me and I will check it. I should see you approximately every seven minutes. If you’re goofing off, you’ll get a zero.
