                                                                                         Age of Exploration ‘Bulletin Board’ Project


(This will be thoroughly explained in class using examples)


This is an artistic, creative, fun, open-ended poster project.  When I say, “open-ended”, I mean you can alter, change, ‘take in a different direction’, make it ‘super’ fancy, express your creativity and artistic ability, make a lot bigger,  and/or use other supplies along with what you have been provided with.



1 or 2 pieces of construction paper

Writing/typing paper and access to printer

Information packet


Markers/colored pencils

Glue stick

Access to online research information

Access to Google Classroom


This ‘Bulletin Board’ must display the following:

  1. The Columbian Exchange and what was exchanged.  A map has been provided along with icons of goods/ideas exchanged.  You will want to cut these items out and  display them on the board.

  2. A mini-paragraph explaining the ‘First Americans’ that crossed over the Bering Land Bridge.

  3. A mini-paragraph or miscellaneous graph on Christopher Columbus.

  4. A colored coated map or graph displaying the main European powers that colonized the ‘New World’: Spain, Portugal, France, England.  

  5. Your Bulletin Board will need a title.

  6. At least 3 pics will be placed creatively on the board.
