Are you looking for a great research project for your students as they study the different European Explorers? This poster project is both fun and interactive for your students. They will choose an explorer to research, create a poster with their information and present their material to the class.
You will find a handout explaining the project (perfect to send home), a rubric to help you grade, and pictures of student posters to give you and your students an idea of what they can do. I encouraged mine to cut their posters into shapes that represent something from their explorer. They sure can get creative!
Also included is a chart for your students to use during the presentations. As they learn about the different explorers, they can take notes on this grid, creating their own study guide.
Easy to explain, easy to implement and easy to grade - it's a perfect project!
This is part of my European Exploration Bundle - if this sounds like a great project, you will want to make sure to check out the rest of the bundle (Interactive Notebook Pieces, Power Points, Vocabulary activities and more!).
Happy Teaching! - Martha from "The Owl Spot"
