How were people's lives different in the Middle Ages than now?
For this it's a good idea to think of things that we have now and then find some information about what it was like in the Middle Ages: maybe clothes, work, food, transport, houses, towns, machines and technology?
HOT TIP: these words make great keywords to search for on the internet. For example, try clothes "middle ages" in a google search.
When searching google, if you put double speech marks " " around your search term, google will search for it as a phrase. Very handy if you're looking for something in particular and you know the words will be in that order.
There's a lot of good information on the EPIC databases about history, particularly the World History in Context database.
HOT TIP: To get to the EPIC databases you will need a password from your school librarian first. Or, you can log on to AnyQuestions.co.nz between 1 and 6pm Monday to Friday, and one of the librarians can help you online.
Some EPIC databases may also be available through your public library.
