Age of Exploration

Today we dove head first into the Age of Exploration. Students copied their notes by starting with the standards.

SS4H2 The student will describe European exploration in North America.
a. Describe the reasons for, obstacles to, and accomplishments of the Spanish, French, and English explorations of John Cabot, Vasco Nunez Balboa, Juan Ponce de Leon, Christopher Columbus, Henry Hudson, and Jacques Cartier.
b. Describe examples of cooperation and conflict between Europeans and Native Americans.

We had a discussion about Pearl Harbor and most sections played a game relating to the reasons for and obstacles to exploration. Here's one of the flipcharts from a section!

I was taken to your blog randomly, and wondered if you noticed none of your blogs have any comments?

I am new to blogging and am trying to find out how to get the word out on blogs, and I guess the google blog tool only has this random button at the top which takes you to the newest blog updated worldwide.

Your blog was probably on the newest unpdate queue for about .01 seconds before I clicked on it.

Also having the word verification for comments and no (Post Comment) button at the end of your posts would also account for no comments on any of your posts.

OR, not one person has ever seen your blog except the 1 in 6 billion who click on the NEXT button right after you published each of your blogs.
