Product Description
Magellan was one of the world's greatest early explorers! He is best known for discovering and naming the Pacific Ocean! Students will love learning about him with this fun and engaging resource. This pack on Magellan has it all with informational articles, biography organizer, comprehension questions, vocabulary posters, map activity, and a 5 page flip-up book!

Magellan is remembered of as one of the world’s greatest explorers! He discovered the Strait of Magellan near the tip of South America. He proved that all the oceans are connected and that the world is a lot bigger than previously believed. Magellan named the Pacific Ocean for its smooth and calm waters. More importantly, he showed it was possible to sail all the way around the world.

This packet includes many interactive activities and learning opportunities for students including:
✔Informational Articles
✔Comprehension Questions
✔Answer Keys
✔Meet Magellan
✔Magellan Mini-Booklet
✔Just the Facts
✔Instruments for Navigation Activity
✔Plot it Out Map Activity
✔Navigation Mystery Flaps
✔Biography Organizer
✔Color the Facts
✔Vocabulary Posters
✔Vocabulary Flip Flaps
✔PLUS 5 Page Flip-up Booklet

There are three main activities:
Introduce the six 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 Magellan.

Next, have students read the informational articles, complete the Magellan organizer and answer the comprehension questions. There are two different articles: one with more detailed information and one for younger students. You could have students work with a partner or in small groups to research more about Magellan.

Interactive Activities:
I’ve included lots of hands-on activities in this pack depending on the age of your students and time allotted for this unit.
✔Color the Facts
✔Navigation Mystery Flaps
✔Magellan Mini-booklet with Timeline Activity
✔Just the Facts
✔Plot it out Map Activity
✔5-Page Flip book

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 12x18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover. They could also decorate the outside of the folder with a colorful Magellan poster or their own design. Or staple the organizer on the other side of the book cover, like a lap book. Have fun exploring!
