The Colombian Exchange

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

This month, we are highlighting some of our top staff picks! These are our favorite educational resources in the PBS LearningMedia library, and among them is this interactive lesson on the Columbian Exchange: http://to.pbs.org/29AVRzy

What happened when Columbus landed in America, and connected it by ship to Europe? In this blended lesson supporting literacy skills, students watch video dramatizations that tell the story of the Spanish explorers who arrived in the Americas with Columbus and introduced European, African and Asian plants and animals to the Western Hemisphere. Students develop their literacy skills through a social studies focus on how the Columbian Exchange changed life on both sides of the Atlantic. Start fall off right with a history lesson, or explore more classroom-ready digital learning resources at PBSLearningMedia.org!
