7th Gr. Columbian Exchange Projects

posted Dec 15, 2015, 5:44 AM by Nicole Kinlaw

Mrs. Bryant's 7th grade Social Studies classes completed Columbian Exchange Projects. Research was done in the library using reference books.

They were given a popular recipe from one of the 50 US states. They had to research the origins of each ingredient and create a booklet according to a rubric. By doing this, students discover that most of our popular dishes weren't possible prior to the Columbian Exchange.
