There are LOTS of activities in this packet. I prefer to give bonus activities and then let you decide what will work best for your needs and your students.

Introduce the unit with Early Explorers Anticipatory Set of T/F questions to pique and build background knowledge. As a whole group read the informational articles about the Age of Exploration, Native Americans & Explorers, and Instruments for Navigation and complete the student activity related to each article.

Introduce the six vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These look great on a bulletin board also.

Next, create a learning station for each of the seven explorers in this pack. In a folder at each station include the informational articles about that explorer, voyage map, biography organizers, just the facts page, and comprehension questions for the students to complete.

Explorer Timeline Mini-Booklets are perfect for interactive notebooks, extended activities, homework, or for reviewing at the end of the unit. Have students complete it by writing 3 facts about that explorer, cut out and put the timeline dates in the correct order and glue on the inside of the mini-booklet. Then color and attach inside their notebooks, if desired.

The articles and writing activities are designed to help students think about essential questions such as:
*Why were the Europeans interested in world exploration?
*How did the Native Americans and explorers impact each other?
*What were some of the obstacles the explorers had to overcome in the New World?
