PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


Migration to the Americas.

A PowerPoint Show about who discovered and settled the Americas prior to Columbus in 1492 AD.

Migration to the Americas has long been taught as only occurring over the Land Bridge between Asia and America and taking 10’s of thousands of years for the Hunter-Gathers to spread throughout both continents. Using modern research and the documentation of other advanced civilizations (Chinese, Vikings, Polynesians, etc…) this presentation explores nautical routes to the Americas. Successfully vetted by over 300 middle school students. This is a fantastic presentation that actively engages students in questioning, reflection, dialog, and writing.

Lesson presentation includes frequent opportunities for the students to discuss and write on the topics being learned in class. I have included the notes I use for teaching this unit. If you click on the Presenter’s Screen, notes will appear on 24 of the slides. This presentation is the first section in the Mesoamerican Civilization Thematic Unit PowerPoint Presentation a PowerPoint show covering the Olmec, Maya and Aztec civilizations of Central America.
