GoD, GLoRY, and GoLD

God, Glory, and Gold Packets were distributed WEDNESDAY, 2/15 for this HISTORICAL ERA (Era 1: Many Worlds Meet)

Societies in Europe, Africa, and the Americas were (and still are) greatly affected by geographical, political and economic forces.
Student Goals for Historical ERA 1:
•Use geographic representations to compare information about people, places, and events in time.
•Explain how major events are related to one another in time.
•Compare and contrast differing interpretations of current & historical events.

The initial learning activities provide historical background for the PUSH/PULL factors of exploration. Students began fact-finding in their Chapter Walk and collaborated with peers to analyze text and images in different formats.

(Ms. D note: Update 2/23) Students finished the Interactive Review of “EUROPE” and “AFRICA” CLOZE THE GAPS. Cloze activities require students to use context clues and improve reading comprehension. We also sorted (color coded) KEY TERMS, PEOPLE, PLACES, and EVENTS into Economy, Society, Political, Geography. The Interactive Review video clips are below.


Use the videos below and BrainPOP to review People, Places and Events in Time.

VIKINGS from Chapter Walk

BLACK DEATH from CLOZE the Gaps: Europe





Draw an outline map of Africa on the last page of Packet and create a key: Desert = yellow, Savanna = orange, Rainforest = green. Shade in the map using the BRAINPOP videos below.

  1. Hi Mc Kenna and Alex,

    Follow the same directions from class: Scroll down to the bottom of the “God, Glory and Gold” post and click where it says “Maptastic…click here for the google doc.” The notes start at p. 4. I hope this helps.

  14. Hey Ms. D, In my agenda book it says Africa map under homework, but I’m not sure what to do. I did write in the key (yellow)= desert, (green)= rainforest, and (orange)= savanna but there’s no map. I also heard some people say that for their class you said they didn’t have to do it, so I’m really confused. Please respond when you get the chance, thankyou!

  16. I was watching a show a while ago and it said that because so many people were dying during the Black Death that some of them thought that Death was just moving his way into town each day, causing more and more people to die.

  17. Hi Ms.D!
    I used the brainpop videos as a way to review for our quiz tomorrow! For me, brainpop is a very effective way for me to learn and review past information!

  18. Hi Ms.Digangi. I just thought I would share what I know about the Black Plague. I was watching a paranormal show where they were investigating a haunted island. I don’t remember where it was located, but I know it is against the law to go on it. During the time of the Black Plague doctors would take the infected people over to the island by canoe. These doctors wore masks with large noses where they put herbs to prevent them from catching the sickness. Once they arrived the diseased people were put in “hospitals” started by nuns. Most patients were brutally abused. I’m not positive this is correct as I saw the show a while ago, but I figured I would post it anyway.
