This fun activity is designed to make memorization interesting!
Recall that Magellan circumnavigated the world, Pizarro discovered Florida, Marco Polo visited China, Henry Hudson in Canada, and much more. Some vocabulary terms (conquistador, middle passage) are also included.
There is a concise direction sheet for the teacher as well as students. It includes a visual modification that can help serve an IEP accommodation.
Students really enjoy the independence that this activity offers. They are generally able to navigate it with a partner, and they remain focused on the hands-on aspect. When the teacher does assist, there is ample opportunity for instruction.
