Students review the Era of Exploration by creating a collection of newspaper front pages. There are academic and creative requirements to this project and students must cover 24 items from the time period. A sample list of 52 topics to choose from is included (such as Ponce de Leon, Vespucci, Magellan, challenges, settlements, Aztecs, Inca, caravel, Hudson Bay Company, Northwest Passage, the Columbian Exchange, and more!!!), as well as three sample layouts and a points distribution. This could work for a sub! See the preview for a closer look.
