This fun twist on a typical PowerPoint and Note Taker chart will have your students engaged from beginning to end! This PowerPoint goes through the 6 early explorers students are required to know through the Georgia Performance Standards. These explorers include Columbus, Ponce de Leon, Balboa, Cabot, Cartier, and Hudson. For each explorer, the students will learn about who they sailed for, the reason for sailing, obstacles faced, and accomplishments.
The best part about the product is that it has a Social Media theme. Each explorer is given an Instagram and Facebook account. The students will LOVE learning about each explorer by looking at their Instagram posts, pictures, and hashtags as well as their profile page.
A note taker chart is also provided. Students can use the information from the PowerPoint to fill out the chart and use later for review and studying.
I hope you and your students find this resource super fun and engaging! Please remember to leave feedback!
