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
