Students read a brief account of Ferdinand Magellan's explorations and his death in 1521, answer 10 questions, and complete 2 creative tasks (one involving social media, the other involves creating a museum exhibit). The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--Why might Magellan have ultimately sailed for Spain rather than his native Portugal?
--From whom do we get this account and how accurate do you consider it?
--Summarize the first two paragraphs of the account in 4 sentences or less.
--Why might Magellan's men have left him behind?
--Does Magellan deserve the legacy he has in modern society and in history textbooks, why or why not?
Consider the bundle to save!!!
