You went where?!
European Exploration & Making some Food
- What was happening with world trade during this time period? Was it increasing or decreasing?
- What was the Age of European Exploration?
- What were motivations for European expansion at this time?
- What is globalization?
- What are some of the goods/diseases/things that were traded from Europe to North America?
Moving forward, the students have already been assigned a project for this unit focusing on researching an explorer and explaining their motivations for travel, relevant background information, and the opportunity to, for extra credit, make a dish from Europe, North America, or somewhere else prior to exploration. Students may bring in this dish, and other needed supplies, on the day before Thanksgiving break which is a half day. While optional, food is awesome, and, highly encouraged. The directions and scale for this assignment are available through Infinite Campus.
