Product Description
There have been, and continue to be, differing opinions and perspectives on Christopher Columbus. Many argue that he should be considered a villain in the archives of history, while others argue that he brought fourth colonization and the modern world.
No matter what opinion you are of, this activity will get your students THINKING and forming their OWN opinion about Columbus.
This activity can be a stand-alone social studies activity, but it also ties in well with the Common Core reading skill of Author’s Purpose, point of view, Author’s perspective, and persuasive writing techniques.

Students will analyze three books, Encounter (not provided), In 1492 (not provided), and a textbook passage (provided) and three films (Youtube links provided below) and determine the Author’s purpose for writing, the point of view, and the author’s perspective. They will then determine why the author chose that particular point of view for creating their book or film.
**Copy the critic sheets double sided then fold in half to make booklets.
