This internet scavenger hunt guides the student through hyperlinks to read and answer questions about the following European Explorers: John Cabot, Vasco Núñez de Balboa, Juan Ponce de León, Christopher Columbus, Henry Hudson, and Jacques Cartier.
Students will enjoy the short videos (5 minutes or less), Explorer games, and drawing different pictures to help illustrate the life of the these explorers.
Although these six different scavenger hunts were designed for 4th grade, they can easily be used for 3rd, 5th, and middle school. I made sure to include an answer key as well.
Each scavenger hunt could be completed independently by each student, a pair of students, or in a whole group environment with the teacher as the facilitator.
