This project is the perfect addition to your unit on European explorers. It is designed to be used either as a way to introduce European Explorers (Students do not need prior knowledge to complete activity) or as a final project at the end of a unit. It works great as a whole group activity, as a center activity, or as a combination of both.
Students will begin by recording information about 17 different European Explorers on a data recording sheet. They then will use the information and dates they have gathered to construct a timeline from the template provided in this product. When their timeline is finished, there is an optional assessment that they can complete using their complete timeline.
This product includes:
Teacher Directions (Lesson Suggestions)
