The Fountain of Youth

Seventh graders study Ponce de Leon and the Fountain the Fountain of Youth. Using a real life analogy, 7th graders compare the skills of a conquistador to that of a professional basketball player. They discover reasons why the conquistador was easily able to defeat the natives. After reading a paragraph on Juan Ponce de Leon, students discuss the key points of his life.
