We reached a milestone! Teaching on Lemon Lane now offers 100 products!! Consider this FREEBIE a thank you! To stay up to date on new products, sales, and freebies make sure to follow my store Teaching on Lemon Lane!

This is a great resource for anyone that teaches about early explorers, early exploration, reasons for exploration, and the routes taken. I created this printable for the students to fill in while they listened to different groups present about the explorer they researched. These look great and are fun for students to cut out and glue into their interactive notebook. These could also be used as a center or rotation activity where students research an explorer and fill out the information for that specific explorer.

This FREEBIE includes a page for the following explorers:

Leif Ericson

Marco Polo

Francisco Pizarro

Prince Henry

Bartolomeu Dias

Christopher Columbus

Amerigo Vespucci

John Cabot

Vasco De Gama

Vasco De Balboa

Ponce De Leon

Ferdinand Magellan

Hernando Cortes

Sir Francis Drake

Samuel De Champlain

Henry Hudson

Jacques Cartier

Francisco Coronado

Hernando De Soto

James Cook


Now includes blank cards as well as:

Robert de La Salle

John Smith

Daniel Boone

Lewis, Clark, & Sacagawea

Students must provide the nation the explorer represented, their purpose for exploration, a favorite fact or accomplishment, and draw the route of the explorers on a map.
