This downloadable product is a 1-page movie resource handout to go along with the FIRST HALF of EPISODE 2 of the TV series "1491 The Untold Story of the Americas Before Columbus" titled "ENVIRONMENT".
This series is produced by two Indigenous-owned Canadian companies and uses interviews with experts (archaeologists, cultural leaders, scholars, many of whom are Indigenous) and live-action story-telling to illustrate the history of North, South, and Central America.
Each episode is 44 minutes, and has been divided into two hour-long "lessons". See products listings for the companion handout for the other half of this episode.
The handout in this download contains: side 1 comprehension/viewing questions, side 2 elaboration questions / project ideas / discussion prompts (which rounds the half-episode lesson out to a full hour, as well as gives ideas for research and cross-curricular projects). See my free download for episode 1 first half as an example.
1491 can be viewed in Canada on the APTN website, or by subscription and streamed from the 1491 Channel streaming site on Vimeo.
