! 7 Engaging and Critical Thinking lessons with Review and Assessment!
For this lesson, students investigate the Columbian Exchange. The students will review the Columbian Exchange, and then task cards will prompt them to look up the origin of the plants, animals, and diseases that were transferred. This lesson does require access to iPads or Chromebooks. The class will then collectively jigsaw their information. Students are able to get up out seats and move around the classroom! This really helped my students to remember the significance of the exchange! There is a recording sheet and an exit ticket already provided for easy analysis.
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:
7.2b.3 - Students will EXAMINE the major reasons why Native American societies declined in population and lost land to the Europeans.
