My students gave this activity two thumbs up!!!!
What better way to discover about the explorers during the Age of Discovery than a research and role-play activity? Your students will research a famous European explorer and then become that person in a role-play activity in which they will compete with one another to see who is chosen to adorn the cover of the next issue of TIME WARP magazine as the "Explorer of the Year." This can be used as an introductory activity or a concluding project. Skills addressed with this activity: research, role-play, interview, team-work.
Thank you for considering the "Age of Discovery Research and Role-Play Activity: Explorers"
