Age of Exploration: Explorer Brochure Project
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Students will be allowed to select a partner and will be assigned a specific explorer from the age of exploration. Depending on the class, you can let the student select their explorer, but part of the idea is that each group has a different person to research as the projects will be presented to the class and help in the instruction and learning of each explorer. They will inherently be collaborating as they are working in pairs. They will be communicating their ideas, thoughts, and research by publishing their brochure and video for others across the grade level to see. Some will even be used as examples in future years. They are allowed nearly full creative power other than that they have to create a brochure on Canva. The critical thinking piece comes from doing their own research into the lives, explorations, and adventures of their explorer, deciding what is important and what they want to include, as well as how they will present their findings. They will also be tasked with identifying the impact that this explorer had on the world both during their time as well as how that impacts us today.

Overview:

Few geo-political events have resonated through the past 70 years like Neville Chamberlain?s decision to pursue the policy of appeasement in reaction to German aggression leading up to the Second World War. Leaders throughout the world have invoked appeasement to justify military action ever since. The decisions that went into Chamberlain?s policy, however, were far from straightforward. Historians have continually debated and reinterpreted these events. In this lesson, students address the issue of appeasement and explore and weigh evidence against and in favor of the policy.
