In this lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades 3-5, students use BrainPOP resources to explore the reasons Columbus set sail for the New World. Students then investigate the effects that the “discovery” of the Americas had on both the Natives living there and the Europeans who came to the New World. Students also discuss, brainstorm, and write about their new learning, pulling from prior knowledge as well as the content in two BrainPOP videos.
