There are 3 main activities in this activity pack about Ponce de Leon:
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. In addition, the vocabulary cards are a great hands-on challenging activity to get them thinking critically. There’s also a colorful map included to help students visualize the voyages of Ponce de Leon.

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

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 Ponce de Leon poster or their own design. Or staple the Ponce de Leon Organizer on the other side of the book cover. Or as a lapbook. Have fun exploring!
