This aligns with the STARR teks and should be fine with common core as well!
Included is a power point explaining why countries explored. Problems with finding a new passage to Asia and the failure of Roanoke.
The best thing is the New and Old world foods circles. I will have a separate free download for cards to print for this if you want to do it! Here, you have a few kids try to guess which crops are old world or new. Then you can surprise them with the real answers. I project it on the board (part of the PP) and let them come tape up an answer!
Included are two graphic organizers, each ending is different. The first Jamestown is lightly mentioned in the failure stage, prepping for the next day of Jamestown. The second, Students are asked an open question that can be used as an exit ticket!
