Parthenon is a temple on the Athenian Acropolis, Greece , and is dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena. They consider Athena to be their virgin patron. The Parthenon itself is replaced an older temple in Athena, historians call it the Pre-Parthenon or the Old Parthenon that was destroyed in the Persian invasion of 480 BC.

1493: An Uncommon History of How Columbus Changed the World

1493: An Uncommon History of How Columbus Changed the World | 7th grade History World Explorers | Scoop.it
What events from half a millennium ago can teach us about the globalization debate today.

In 2005, 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus by Charles C. Mann came to be regarded as the most ambitious and sweeping look at pre-Columbus North and South America ever published. This month, Mann is back with 1493: Uncovering the New World Columbus Created — a fascinating look at one of the lesser-known, lesser-considered aspects of what happened when Columbus and his crew set foot on American soil: the environmental upheaval that began as they brought plants, animals and diseases that forever changed the local biosphere, both in America and in Europe once the explorers returned to the Old World. Known as The Columbian Exchange, this process is considered the most important ecological event since the extinction of the dinosaurs, and the paradoxes at its heart echo today’s polarized views of globalization as either a great cross-pollinator or a great contaminator of cultures.

Free Technology for Teachers: European Exploration - A Game for Learning About The Age of Discovery

Free Technology for Teachers: European Exploration - A Game for Learning About The Age of Discovery | 7th grade History World Explorers | Scoop.it

"Last week Glenn Wiebe http://ow.ly/foKFR ; published a list of iPad apps for history teachers. One item in that list that was new to me was European Exploration: The Age of Discovery http://ow.ly/foKC6   This free iPad app puts students in charge of exploring the "New World." In the game students are in charge of selecting explorers and ships to send out to the New World. Students have to manage the finances of their expeditions so that they don't run out of money before they can return home safely."
