This European Exploration sample is just a small part of my unit on European Exploration. The freebie contains slides and cloze passages from the chapter on Portugal and their explorers.
My full unit on European Exploration contains a dynamic PowerPoint, as well as 49 flash cards, 30 bingo cards, 13 graphic organizers, 13 blank graphic organizers (for guided note-taking), an extensive color-coded vocabulary list (accompanied by 6 vocabulary quizzes) and a challenging 35-question European Exploration Unit Test.
My European Exploration PowerPoint takes students all the way from Dias' voyage around the Cape of Good Hope all the way to French settlement of the Ohio Valley! The PowerPoint is filled with detailed teacher notes and dynamic illustrations and maps that will engage your students. The teacher notes are so extensive that the PowerPoint reads like a textbook!
There are also cloze passages to accompany every slide, and lesson reviews filled with essay questions.
There are also 3 word search puzzles, 6 crossword puzzles, and daily review questions (that can be used for as daily activators) to accompany the PowerPoint.
Numerous Common Core Standards are addressed throughout and answer keys are provided for all resources. There are resources provided for classroom discussions, assessment, differentiated learning, extended classwork, writing activities and guided notes.
All resources follow the sequencing of the PowerPoint making it practical and easy to use. The resources included will keep your students very busy for 1-2 months.
