Your students' world will literally take shape in this presentation, which chronicles the growing edges of the (flat) earth during European Exploration of New Worlds. Dias, da Gama, Magellean, and Columbus are key players in this game of navigational chess, and students will be interested to see where each piece lands. Maps of the "known world" as well as photos of slave ships will also grab your students' intrigue.
By providing an in-depth and interesting overview of European exploration in the New World, this presentation would be a wonderful complement to a unit on this topic. The 17 slide presentation is both thought-provoking and informative.

Wow, chapter one must be really long! The history review game that your class is about to play covers concepts that range from the Enlightenment and the Crusades, to the Conquistadors and the slave trade. There is a lot of information here, which makes this a great Jeopardy style review tool.
