This creative project has students select and research an explorer from the Age of Discovery and create a travel brochure based on his journey.
A list of 15 possible choices for an explorer is provided along with detailed instructions on what is required and what to include. My students gain a lot from this assignment because they must think creatively about each explorer's route and make connections to the world today. A rubric with both self-evaluation and teacher evaluations are included as well.
This project works very well as an extension activity after completing the Age of Discovery and Exploration Readings & Dinner Party
project in class.
