We began our study of the AGE OF EXPLORATION by examining PuSh/PuLL Factors (Ms. D note: Thank you Robert for recognizing the soccer ball. :D) Student teams analyzed evidence from a mystery bag to determine the motivating factors of exploration.
Geographic obstacles of exploration became clear when student teams started their 3D Map Activity last Friday. Tomorrow, we will construct our 3D maps – don’t forget to bring in your 3D glasses. 🙂
Tell us what you learned about your explorer from the maps.
Make a connection to modern day.
Do WE need an explorer for today? What are OUR PuSH/PuLL Factors?
What areas remain unknown?
