Welcome to the Smock Room!
Introduce your students to the story of Christopher Columbus through an engaging discussion using Visual Thinking Strategies. This Power Point, guides you and your students through a series of questions that promote critical thinking, analysis and building vocabulary while looking at artworks. It's a perfect way to integrate art within the social studies curriculum. It ties in perfectly with Common Core ELA, in which students use the images as informational text and offer responses through evidence found in the artworks. A PERFECT COMBINATION!
Comments and instructional sequence is offered in the "comments" portion of the presentation, prior to pressing "Slideshow".
This instructional sequence offers printable resources, fun "point of view" activity and a vocabulary list.
