This lesson covers the migration of the first humans to the Americas across the Bering Land Bridge. Students will make predictions and check them using a video clip. Then, they will read about the topic with a partner and highlight textual evidence to answer passage-based questions. Finally, assess student learning with an exit slip! The video clip used is of a BBC Documentary, which makes the timing of the lesson flexible. You can show just enough of the video to cover the content needed, or if you have extra time, you can show the full video to add further insight to your students' learning!
