In this research project, students will learn about early European explorers to the New World by creating a Google Tour. In the document are included links to an example tour, a tutorial on Google Tours, and to the Google Tour Builder itself. Before assigning this project, it is a good idea to practice yourself, as Google Tour Builder can be tricky to learn how to use. I used explorers discussed in our history text book such as Leif Ericson, Christopher Columbus, John Cabot, and Juan Ponce de Leon. I would recommend using your textbook as a guide to early explorers so that your students have some background knowledge before beginning the project.
Scoring guide included.
