For Gold, God, and Glory! European Exploration, Trade, and the Clash of Cultures

A fabulous unit of study on The Age of Discovery, European explorers, and Christopher Columbus is here for you. In these eight lessons, pupils study the affects these explorations had on other cultures. Hands-on activities include using navigational tools, enhancing mapmaking skills, and simulations regarding first contact. This outstanding series of lessons contain video links, resource links, worksheets, and a phenomenal teacher-created test to be given at the end.

I was at a crossroads trying to think of a new… interesting… active way to introduce and teach the different types of economic systems. I turned to Lesson Planet and entered “Economic Systems” into the search tab and was inundated with resources and lesson plans and ideas… the kids loved the lesson I modified for them and still ask when we are going to do another lesson like that “Paper Airplane Company” one. Thanks Lesson Planet.
