These are task cards I created to use to check for mastery with our European Explorers unit. These are designed with 4th grade in mind, but they could be used in other grades are remediation, pre-teaching, or extension. Each is open ended to ensure they are not just guessing the answer and not really taking the time to think about and apply what they know.
~6 Explorers (Balboa, Cartier, Columbus, Hudson, Leon, and Cabot)
~Achievements of each
~Obstacles they faced
~Sponsor country of each
~Individual facts for the different explorers
These could be used as individual practice, an assessment, a group activity, homework, or for an early finisher.
I hope your class gets great use out of these task cards!
