This Explorer poster is an awesome research tool. I have my students fill this out while they are completing their research on their chosen explorer. This allows the students to easily see what information they still need to find, and access their research when writing their essays. The great thing about this product is that it can stand alone without an essay or additional project, or serves as an effective scaffold to an Early Explorer project. Student are required to find:
Name of explorer
Route of most famous exploration
Reason or motivation for exploration
Draw their portrait
Birth year and Death Year
Where they were born
What they were famous for
I have every student complete one of these sheets. For explorer projects students work in groups so these sheets are a great way to keep everyone accountable. I hope you enjoy this poster as much as my students and I do.
