These interactive notebook graphic organizers will help students organize information about the explorers during the Age of Exploration!
Interactive notebooks are an effective tool in the classroom. Not only can they assist students in keeping their work organized, but they are also an easy-to-access resource for reference throughout the year.
The Age of Exploration Interactive Notebook graphic organizers resource is intended as a resource for late-elementary and middle school ages.
