OPENING ACTIVITY: With your TEAM (that means 3-4 of you!) name the FOUR counties that explored and claimed land in the present-day United States. And also, answer this question- Did Columbus die knowing that he actually never made it to Asia? Lastly, what do you think the Columbian Exchange is? (NO CHEATING!!)
Today we are going to predict and discuss what exactly is the Colubmia Exchange and why it is important enough for us to talk about it. We are then going to check out our STS and see what information we still have questions on before the quiz on Friday. And lastly, we are going to (time permitting) preview the English colonies topic that we will be covering next.
TO DO LIST:
- Opening Activity
- Columbian Exchange activity
