Exploration and Discovery of North America

Lesson Plans | Primary Sources |

Web Sites and Lesson Plans:

Magna Carta: Cornerstone of the U.S. Constitution
Magna Carta served to lay the foundation for the evolution of parliamentary government and subsequent declarations of rights in Great Britain and the United States. In attempting to establish checks on the king's powers, this document asserted the right of "due process" of law.

Images of the New World
How did the English picture the native peoples of America during the early phases of colonization of North America? This lesson plan enables students to interact with written and visual accounts of this critical formative period at the end of the 16th century, when the English view of the New World was being formulated, with consequences that we are still seeing today.

Age of Exploration: A Class Timeline: - an interdisciplinary unit that introduces students to the age of exploration and discovery. Students use the Internet to research expeditions and their leaders that led to the exploration of the New World and the colonization of North America. The students use an online timeline generator to create their own explorer timeline, and then work in groups to make posters that are displayed on a classroom timeline. The unit builds knowledge and understanding of the world during this period as the students research other events and discoveries in the areas of literature, art, music, science, politics and religion.

Mission Nuestra Señora de la Concepción and the Spanish Mission in the New World
In this Picturing America lesson, students explore the historical origins and organization of Spanish missions in the New World and discover the varied purposes these communities of faith served. Focusing on the daily life of Mission Nuestra Señora de la Concepción, the lesson asks students to relate the people of this community and their daily activities to the art and architecture of the mission.
