Save big! - Buy the "Three Worlds Meet Unit Bundle! 7 Engaging and Critical Thinking lessons with Review and Assessment!
This is one of my favorite discussions of the year! I discuss Portuguese and Spanish exploration with a focus on Christopher Columbus, Bartolomeu Dias, and Vasco da Gama. To help my students focus on the discussion, I've created a set of doodle notes to improve concentration. There are two pages of doodle notes (fully editable) and an exit ticket to check for understanding. I've also included a slideshow for presenting the information.
The lesson is linked to NYS Social Studies Standards, but you could easily cut and paste in your own standards for your state.
NYS Framework Standards:
7.2a.1 - EXPLAIN the significance of the technological developments and scientific understandings that improved European exploration such as the caravel, magnetic compass, and astrolabe.
7.2a.2 - EXAMINE the voyage of Columbus, leading to the Columbian Exchange.
This zip file includes a PDF version, a PowerPoint version, and a link to a Google Slides version. Both the PowerPoint and the Google Slides versions are fully EDITABLE.
