Over the hump!

Students explored the Columbian Exchange and its effects on Europe and the impact of Europe on the region of Latin America.  Today was food-finish the ad for homework-and tomorrow we will look at language and religion.

Welcome to the GeoBee Advertising Agency!

Today’s topic of discussion was food!  Students learned about the Columbian Exchange and the role of Africa Slavery within it.  Our new advertising execs then created an ad for one of the New World food items to “sell” to the Old World.  We will continue work on that tomorrow for about 15 minutes.

Our Student Growth Model test will be on April 9th.  Stay tuned for (optional) review over Spring Break!
