Age of Exploration Pick 'n Flip Clip Cards

Are you looking for an independent activity to review facts about the Age of Exploration? Try clip cards! This set of clip cards includes 50 different questions related to explorers and exploration.

These cards are easy to assemble and are portable. These can be used alone or with a partner. Teachers could use them in centers or as early finisher activities. They could also be used as questions for a game. Teachers can even send them home with students who need more practice!

Clip cards are a quick self-checking activity! This set of clip cards reviews information about exploration. Topics include:

  • Identification of important countries & regions from the time period.
  • Identification of exploration technology & its uses (astrolabe, sextant, compass, & caravel).
  • Matching explorers & their routes and achievements.
  • Matching explorers & their sponsoring countries. Explorers included are Columbus, Cortez, Pizarro, Magellan, Coronado, da Verrazzano, Hudson, de Soto, Cartier, Cabot, Ponce de Leon, Champlain, Balboa, Brule, La Salle, Cabral, da Gama, Dias, and Nicolet.

On the front of the clip card is a map or an image and four answer choices. On the back, another image is shown and the correct answer is shaded.

Clip cards are similar to task cards, but the students can check their own progress. Students clip a clothespin on what they believe is the correct answer, then flip the card over and see if their answer is correct!

Clip cards can be used in a variety of ways:

  • In a center
  • As a partner activity – have students check/quiz each other.
  • As a game – just project the card to your class screen!
  • Use them for homework/parent engagement – send a set home with students.
  • As an early finisher activity.

Please see the preview for even more information and pictures of this product.

Please Note - This Boom Deck contains the same questions as those in my Explorers & the Age of Exploration Boom Cards. The Clip Cards are like Boom Cards, but they are more like traditional paper flash cards.
