Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To review the people and major events of the Age of Exploration

TIME:
1 class period

This lesson begins with students completing a series of 30 statements by filling in missing words, names, and terms. Each statement describes a significant event during the Age of Exploration. One or more letters in each answer are given as clues. You can decide whether to have the class complete this section as a contest, game, or an activity for individuals.

Next, students will answer a Thought Question. Of the 30 events in the preceding list, class members must decide which 3 they think were of greatest historical importance and give a reason for their choice. This helps develop critical thinking skills. Answers can be discussed afterwards.

Students finish the lesson by labeling 15 key events of the Age of Exploration on a Timeline.

Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
