Product Description
Teaching about explorers? Maybe you don't like teaching that Columbus discovered America when it was already discovered. Maybe you think Columbus has become controversial.

Let your students decide! Who Should Get Credit?

This is a short lesson that gives only basic information about both men. The information is presented in a way to help students make comparisons between the two men and situations and help them form an opinion about which one deserves credit for discovering North America.

The end of the lesson includes five writing prompts. Use one of them, two of them, or all of them! The point of the the writing prompts is to get students to express their opinion and to justify it!

If writing prompts aren't your thing the questions would also make great class discussions prompts. You get to decide!
