This activity includes eight internet based primary source documents related early exploration and colonization of the Americas by Europeans. I use these readings and worksheets to add depth and debate while teaching about the colonization of the Americas. The following primary source worksheets are included in the collection:
I would like to thank Sarah Warner for the wonderful clip art!
Students read the primary source documents and answer the questions. I usually print out the reading for the students, but you can have students answer the questions using the websites. These activities are great for reinforcing information or topics being taught in the classroom. The assignments can be used to generate classroom discussion or be used as homework. A teacher answer sheet is included for each worksheet. Feel free to modify them as needed for your classes.
