This 15 page activity includes everything you need to have your students examine the "Journal of the first voyage of Columbus". Your students will walk around the classroom (Gallery Walk) to examine short excerpts of Columbus' journal. They will then "graffiti" the excerpts around the room following specific guidelines (direction slide included). Students will then complete a graphic organizer that requires students to cite evidence about how Columbus: described the New World/Native culture, and the motivations for/results of exploration. Creative EXIT CARD activity included!
Great introduction to a United States History course on the "Birth of America" or to use in a World History unit on Exploration.
COMMON CORE ACTIVITY ***Step-by-step teacher directions included***
