The journey through our first historical era, Many Worlds Meet, examines the economic, societal, political, and geographic factors that influenced Africa and Europe prior to the Age of Exploration. The CLOZE activity below encourages students to apply past knowledge and use context clues to “close the gaps” in the reading passage. We review using pop culture, including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ed Nye, and the History Channel. Thank you Brian and Ms. B for bringing in the “Renaissance Faire” pop culture connection!
