The Columbian Exchange

Students are introduced to the events of the Columbian Exchange. In groups, they identify and describe five main areas of cultural exchange between the Spanish and the Native Americans. They examine the economic impact of each area on both groups. To end the lesson, they create a poster sharing this information with their classmates.

I discovered Lesson Planet by accident, and am so glad I did. There would be times when I feel the materials provided to me are inadequate, and this site gave me exactly what I was looking for. I really love it when I give a task, and my students completely take over! I observe how determined they are to get the job done, and they feel more confident when the work is a success!
