Students read 11 quotes about different aspects of Exploration (the Age of Discovery), from various point of view, analyze 9 images, and respond to up to 27 questions and creative tasks. Some of the creative tasks include writing quotes from the points of view of Napoleon and the first person to cross the Bering Land Bridge, creating advertisements and museum exhibits, writing letters to the editor, and more! This would be great for a sub and the answers are included where appropriate. See the preview for a closer look!
Sample questions include:
--In one brief sentence, summarize the point de Sepulveda is making.
--How does he justify that argument?
--Does de Las Casas’ thinking align with the God part of the 3 G’s of exploration? Why or why not?
--Explain the role played by any of the “3 G’s” of exploration in Alfonso’s account. Cite evidence from the text to support your answer.
--Which vocabulary phrase best aligns with what Acosta describes? List and explain two ways that back and forth (hint hint) will be both positive and negative.
-- Inferring from prior knowledge, identify and explain 3 improvements to maritime technology that were intended to help Columbus’ voyage be successful, and then contrast those improvements with the reasons for Columbus not achieving his true goal.
