Connect history to modern times with this engaging 5-E lesson on the causes and effects of colonialism! Everything you need for students to clearly understand how historical events have shaped the world they live in today is included!
A PowerPoint presentation will easily guide you through all the activities. A warm-up will encourage students to think about why there is such inequality between countries around the world today. Fill-in style notes allow students to record key vocabulary words for their interactive notebooks. A fun experiential activity has students shooting hoops in your room while understanding the challenges third world countries face today. Next, students create their own maps and keys that illustrate the history of colonialism by listening to a story you tell. Video clips and a writing activity help summarize the main idea. To evaluate your students learning, a timeline worksheet and comic strip handout conclude the lesson.
Includes: A PowerPoint presentation with warm-up, game and summary, Student Fill-in Notes, Outline of Notes for Modified Students, TimeLine handout with answer key, Comic Strip handout with rubric, World Map handout, and a Teacher Quick Reference Guide
