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.
