In Feudal Society, there was NO social mobility:
Nobles (lords and knights) were at the top
Clergy (priests and nuns) were in the middle
Serfs (peasants) were at the bottom
Serfs WERE NOT slaves and could not be bought or sold; however, they were obligated to their lord in many different ways.

Portugal and Spain were the first nations to begin exploring
AKS39c Explain the role of the improved technology in European exploration including the astrolabe
If not for TRADE brought about by the Crusades, Europeans would not have been able to explore. Navigation and cartography were both aided by the astrolabe, compass and sextant.
These improved technologies, along with the caravel allowed Europeans to not only reach the New World safely, but circumnavigate the globe.
AKS 42a Explain the scientific contributions of Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler & Newton & how these ideas changed the European world view
All Scientific Revolution thinkers emphasized human reasoning. More on this after Christmas when we learn about the Enlightenment.
First to hypothesize the earth was not in the center of the universe
Had no proof and was wrong insofar orbits were circular
Kepler agreed with Copernicus that the sun was in the center of the universe and used math to prove it
He realized that the sun's gravity exerts influence and orbits are elliptical
Used his telescope to observe the heavens and noticed that they are not perfect
He also observed that the earth moves
For his efforts the Church placed him under house arrest for the rest of his life
Went on to develop the law of gravity after an apple dropped on his head
Used experiments to make discoveries
