1 Do Now:Record in Agenda: No HW due next class (3rd & 4th blocks we’ll talk about the History of Aaron assignment another time)Then, turn to the next FRONT SIDE page in your notebook.Using LARGE letters (that take up nearly the whole page), title the page: UNIT 3: The Great Convergence.Draw 4 colorful illustrations on the page, using these clues about the topic (European countries, North America, South America, Africa, Christopher Columbus, and Native Americans).
2 On the next page in your notebook… Write this questionThen, offer your opinion/answerWho should get credit for discovering America? Explain your ideas.Discuss ideas as a class.
3 Draw a line below your last answer… Record the underlined parts of this questionThen write your opinion/answerHistorians have labeled the era we’re about to study, the 1400s – 1600s, as the Great Convergence. If converge means to come together AND you think about the earlier clues given: European countries, North America, South America, Africa, Columbus, and Native Americans…What thoughts do you have on why historians have labeled this era with that name?Discuss answers as a class
5 The Great ConvergenceDefinition: An era in world history when people from the Old World and the New World made contact.Time Period: 1400s-1600s A.D.
6 Old World and New World “Old World” refers to Europe, Africa, and Asia “New World” refers to the Americas: North America & South America
7 Old World and New World Map Sketch this map in your notebookTitle it: Old World and New World MapShade the New World one colorShade the Old World another colorLabel the New World continents: North America & South AmericaLabel the Old World continents: Europe, Asia, & Africa
9 The Earliest Americans: Paleo-Indians Studying how the first people got to the Americas
10 The Earliest Americans: Paleo-Indians The first people to populate the continents now known as North and South America came from Asia and are referred to as the Paleo-IndiansDuring the last Ice Age (between 38,000-10,000 B.C.) people migrated from Asia to North America across a land bridge called BeringiaIn your notebook, sketch the Beringia map. Label the Land Bridge, Asia, and North America.
11 The Earliest Americans: Paleo-Indians Migration is a movement of people or animals from one region to anotherThe migration of people across the land bridge took place over a long period of time (several thousand years)It is believed that these people traveled across Beringia, and then further south following herds of animals
12 The Earliest Americans: Paleo-Indians Over time, these people settled throughout North and South America (these Paleo-Indian people are the ancestors of the Native Americans)About 8,000-10,000 years ago the Earth’s climate grew warmer, ending the Ice Age. Glaciers melted, sea levels rose, and the Beringia land bridge was covered with water.
