The Feudal System and Manorialism

The Feudal System and Manorialism were the class-systems that ranked the people from high to low during the Medieval times!



The Feudal System was set up so that kings were in the highest position. Lords and nobles were higher than everyone, except the king! Next were knights, who were recognized for doing heroic deeds. Today, there are still knights but the title is more ceremonial.

Freeman came next in the Feudal system.  They could go out anywhere but they still had to work in the same places the surfs/slaves did. They had to work for the nobles and lords for money, and then they had to work their own land. Freemen earned their land, but it still had to be given to them by the lords and nobles they work for! The land of which was given by the king to the freemen and surfs was called a “fief.”

Slaves were at the bottom of the class-system. They did not have a choice in their standing, and could not become anything other than a slaves.

The Manorialism was the economic system that the Feudal System was based on. They came up with this because England was practically falling apart.

The intent of these systems was to make the English people more civilized.

What are your thoughts on these class-based systems? Let me know in the comment section below!

The shocking truth about multimeters!

In science today we learned about multimeters! With my dad’s permission and supervision,  I got to test a few things out.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The first thing I did was test a  AA battery. To test a battery, you first have to identify which side is positive and which side is negative. After I did that, I stuck one lead on each side and waited for the voltage to show on the meter. The voltage was 1.56 VDC (volts direct current).

After that I tested an outlet on the wall! That time I had to be very careful not to touch any metal because if I did I could get shocked!!. Most outlets and switches range from 110-120 VAC (volts alternating current) when they are “healthy.” Our outlet was 120.6v!!

I then tested a 9 volt battery, the voltage was 9.39! I also tested a C battery, which had a voltage of 1.627.  Just for fun, I tested another AA battery. This time the voltage on it was 1.514. That means this battery had less power than the first battery that I tested!

I also learned that light bulbs do not store electricity as it measured 0 volts! 💡😎

Switched at Birthday

Last week I got this book called: Switched at Birthday. It’s one of the many types of stories similar to Freaky Friday.

On that note, you can assume that it’s about two people who switch bodies and while they try to get back to normal, they find out what they love or like about the person who they switched with. This book is similar,  but these two girls figure out the struggles of each other!

One girl’s name is Lavender. From the name I would think she was the popular one. I was wrong, Lavender is  picked on because she is flocculent, Meaning hairy. She has a small amount of friends because she is made fun of.

The other girls name is Scarlet. She, of course, is the popular one. Scarlet has many friends and makes fun of Lavender. Lavender admires Scarlet and how no matter what Scarlet wears she looks very pretty.

Once they switch bodies they have to do everything that the other girl would so that no one will suspect anything. When Lavender was in Scarlet’s body, Scarlet’s friends would talk about Lavender and how they said she had to go to a dog groomer to get her hair cut. Then Lavender would know that they talk about her. They didn’t know it but this time they said it right to her face. That is really painful to know that they talk like this, about her, all time.

To find out what else happened you can find the book in the link above.
