different countries. In the medieval times people used to live in
small cities

After the medieval came renaissance. Renaissance was also


known as rebirth they had a new life they had a new form of
architecture and life there was interest for geography, Inventions,
anatomy and , trade. The greatest invention was the printing
press of the renaissance period. The Europeans wanted to
become rich so they decided to have trade with Fareast they
where trading silk , porcelain, spices and jewels from Asia The
only obstacle for the trade was it had to go through Muslim
nations.

Reflection

I really enjoyed doing this project this project was super


interesting and I learned a lot from this unit and how they
traded.Now I understand how the Europeans got rich they got
rich by trading with the Fareast but it took some time for them to
reach the Fareast.I learned different peoples perspectives and
what they thought.

Christopher Columbus found that the world was round not


flat.This topic was so fun and I enjoyed doing the Power Point and
making the timeline.
