Impact Geography has on Exploration

Michelle McClain

In Mrs. McClain's class, we have been learning about the 5 themes of geography and the impact geography has on exploration. Here, the students are sorting pictures of all kinds of foods to see if they originated in the "Old World" or the "New World." They were quite surprised to find out that turkey, popcorn, and and sunflowers are the only foods that originated in North America. The Columbian Exchange had quite an impact on exploration!
