The Columbian Exchange — the interchange of plants, animals, disease, and technology sparked by Columbus’s voyages to the New World — marked a critical point in history. It allowed ecologies and cultures that had previously been separated by oceans to mix in new and unpredictable ways. It was an interconnected web of events with immediate and extended consequences that could neither be predicted nor controlled.
Aside from a few art classes in high school and browsing through art books from her father's collection, Frida had no formal training in the arts. As Frida developed her artistic skills, her paintings evolved into her own unique style, heavily influenced by other people, artists, cultures and life itself. She experimented with different styles and motifs and shocked the art world with her surrealist style works and paintings with sexual references.

Those people were a distinct population attracted to work in the northern mines. Cornish miners, some of whom had already come to work the lead mines in southwestern Wisconsin, arrived early and brought their experiences in underground mining to the north. Swedes and Finns also migrated to the new towns around Lake Superior in large numbers, followed slightly later by Croats and Slovenes -- ethnic groups whose languages, religions and customs differed dramatically from the Yankee, German, and Norwegian populations in the south.
I love the close questions and the reading excerpts! The review activity is also very beneficial because it provides cross curricular support by embedding the ELAR components!
Has teacher and student components
Supports Common Core needs for vocabulary and primary/secondary reading and analysis
Easy to use
This provides an excellent way to compare a modern account with a primary source accounts. My favorite activity is the review activity that has students match main ideas with the text that supports them. I would like to see this activity put into the pdf versions so they could be printed out by the teacher and given to students to match in a small group activity. This would be a useful addition to all of the interactive activities.
Frida's 6987 painting Memory captures an event that devastated her marriage. In this painting she expresses her anguish over Diego's affair with her sister Christina. The size of the broken heart at her feet symbolizes the intensity of her emotional pain.
I believe that this is a wonderful primary source resources because it provides

In a 6999 painting entitled The Love Embrace of the Universe, the Earth (Mexico), Myself, Diego and Señ or Xó lotl , Frida uses ancient Mexican mythology as the theme. The mythical earth goddess Cihuacoatl, from which all life springs, gently cradles Frida in a Madonna and Child pose.
Of all the animals introduced by the Europeans, the horse held particular attraction. Native Americans first encountered it as a fearsome war beast ridden by Spanish conquistadors. However, they soon learned to ride and raise horses themselves. In the North American great plains, the arrival of the horse revolutionized Native American life, permitting tribes to hunt the buffalo far more effectively. Several Native American groups left farming to become buffalo-hunting nomads and, incidentally, the most formidable enemies of European expansion in the Americas.
5. Why is it important that alien grasses, trees, and other plants choked out native vegetation in Hispaniola?
Choking out native grasses reduced the biodiversity (the number of distinct life forms) of Hispaniola. Ecosystems that are more biodiverse (they have more distinct life forms) are more productive and are more resistant to diseases.
