Product Description
This is a great introduction to a unit on the Age of Exploration.

This PDF includes 3 class activities, one allowing students to research 4 major events significant in the bringing about of the Age of Exploration (Crusades, Monarchs, Muslim Advances, Marco Polo), another one mapping the Europeans at the beginning of the era, and a Sunken Ship Activity in which students "dive" for information cards on the motives, tools, changes, and advances that allow European Exploration.

Includes directions for students to organize information in notes. Some standard lecture notes are also provided, and entire activity could be used as a lecture if preferred.

Take a look at the preview to see the entire resource!

I recommend printing out Sunken Ship cards 4 to a page and setting up the activity with a "sunken ship" in your classroom to better engage students.

Follow my blog (www.alessonplanforteachers.blogspot.com) for advice on transforming your classroom!

And then, follow up with this informative center's activity where students can travel from location to location to learn about the Columbian Exchange Trade Route:
