European Exploration Primary Source Hook! (NASA or Spain?)

European Exploration Primary Source Hook! (NASA or Spain?)
Product Description
Using the ACAPS (author, context, audience, purpose, significance) formula of analyzing primary sources, this lesson is geared toward introducing a European Exploration unit and making it relevant to students today. I've taken a speech by President Obama at a NASA event and changed only 6 words/phrases to make it seem like it could have been said by a Spanish king over 500 years ago. The message is the same: Exploration can lead to growth and power.

Included in this attachment are both the ACAPS handout with Obama's speech and my changes. It also includes a sheet that has the two together to clearly show the changes made.
