PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this lesson, students learn the power of perspective as they read Christopher Columbus's journal entry praising the luxurious New World. After discussing the reasoning behind this overly glorified description, students rewrite the journal -- but from a very different perspective.

This product includes the following:

1 Page Teaching Instructions
1 Page Excerpt from the Journal of Christopher Columbus
1 Page Worksheet for Student Completion

If this sounds like a product that your students will love, feel free to download the preview to see if it will meet your classroom needs. I hope you have as much fun with this activity as I have!
