......are you studying European Explorers? Do you love interactive notebooks? If so, then this BUNDLED set of 6 passages, each with a flippable interactive notebook activity, is perfect for you.
UPDATE: I now offer this in my MEGA SS bundle
Why do I think you will love my passages? I work very hard to research the information. I try to include a lot of info. and not leave gaps in history like some textbooks do. I try to write passages on one topic, so that it is easier for upper elementary to digest. I have been told I have a writing style that makes the topics easy to learn. I have taught the information for twenty years, PLUS... a bonus is that I confer with my husband who has taught US History for nearly twenty five years and has a Master's degree in US History. I can assure you that we make a great team when it comes to US History!
✱In Georgia, 4th graders study 6 of these 7 explorers (moved to 3rd grade in 2017) as part of the social studies curriculum, so this was written with them in mind. Because it is non-fiction though, the information is suitable for any state studying the same topic. It's great if you just need to learn factual information about this explorer. It is not just specific to Georgia students. NOTE: For most 3rd graders, teacher guidance and class discussions will be needed.
Plus, I have passages for Native American Tribes studied that can be found if you CLICK HERE
Even if you are not a teacher in Georgia though, they will work perfectly, as they are non-fiction and don’t include anything specific to the state of Georgia.
These passages are great for introducing the explorers. Also, you could use as an activity later in the year before state testing time.
There is a passage for each of the following explorers:
•Henry Hudson - English Explorer
•Jacques Cartier - French Explorer
•John Cabot - English Explorer
•Vasco Nunez de Balboa - Spanish Explorer
•Juan Ponce de Leon - Spanish Explorer
•Christopher Columbus - Spanish Explorer
•Hernando de Soto - Spanish Explorer
The explorers passages cover each of these topics:
•Purpose for exploring
•Many more interesting facts!!
The passages are copied as a booklet style, meaning you will print on the front and back of one page. Students will then fold the one page booklet, so that there is a cute cover. When they open it up, they find the passage on the inside. It will glue perfectly inside their notebook.
Once the passage is glued in their notebook, they can glue the flippable beside it, and then fill in information about each category.
Would you rather have these as full page passages and not for interactive notebooks?
I have these same passages in two different formats.This particular pack on this page has passages formatted for interactive notebooks, but I also offer them as full page passages that come with a crossword puzzle each passage.
If you are interested in reading about the full page passages CLICK HERE
The activities are different. The single full page passages have a comprehension crossword, and the interactive notebook passages have a flippable.
Please... if you ever notice anything in my passages that needs to be corrected, such as factual information, please send me a message before you rate the product. I do my best to research thoroughly and provide historical facts. I can look back over and have a new copy uploaded fairly quickly.
Also, if you notice typos or anything else, that is appreciated too. Even with several sets of eyes looking over my work, at times a word can be missed. Thanks so much ahead of time.
I appreciate each and every person that supports my love of creating fun activities.
