Product Description
The Age of Exploration was a time of adventure, urgency, and excitement! This set of 140+ pages of usable resources to teach about 15 European explorers, their discoveries, and their impact on our world. This set includes activities for students to engage in explorer life, use technology to research, and projects to show their understanding. Along with these activities are 17 information saturated passages. These passages each have 6 or more questions for students to answer by showing text evidence and their own understanding.

"We need to learn from history, or we are doomed to repeat it."

This set is vital for any teacher trying to use their valuable time more efficiently. Each interactive notebook activity covers a reading standard - text evidence, cause & effect, comparing/contrasting, sequencing. There are also opportunities to write a small amount of opinions.

My motto is "Work smarter, not harder." All you have to do is pick your standard, print the pages you need for it, and add it to your own lesson plan! This set will save you HOURS of work (I know because this set took me over 100hours to create;). It is also more relevant than most text books for social studies. What makes this set even better is that you can use it in your reading block!
