Product Description
Your students will love learning all about this famous explorer! This creative unit includes articles, activities, vocabulary, and flip book!

Balboa was born in Spain. From a young age, he wanted to become a famous explorer. As a boy he practiced fencing with a sword which helped him later in life. He came from a poor family so he decided to leave Spain looking for riches in the New World.

This packet includes many interactive activities and learning opportunities for students to learn all about Vasco Nunez de Balboa including:
*Informational Articles
*Meet Balboa
*Instruments for Navigation for Explorers
*Navigation Mystery Flaps
*Balboa Organizer
*Facts about Balboa
*Vocabulary Posters
*Vocabulary Flip Flaps
*Balboa Organizer
*PLUS a 5 Page Flip-Up Booklet
For Elementary Grades – Second grade, Third grade, Fourth grade
*Great for Core Knowledge
*Common Core Aligned

There are 3 main activities in this activity pack:
Explorers Vocabulary:
Introduce the 6 vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.There’s also a colorful map included to help students visualize the voyages of Balboa.

Reading:
Next, have students read the informational articles and complete the Balboa organizer. You could have students work with a partner or in small groups to research more about Balboa.

Explorers Activities:
Have students complete the Flip-Up booklet and build it page by page. I usually have them do one page at each center or learning station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip-Up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12 x 18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover. They could also decorate the outside of the folder with a colorful Balboa poster or their own design. Or staple the Organizer on the other side of the book cover, like a lapbook. Have fun exploring!
