Use this activity to sort the accomplishments of European explorers: Christopher Columbus, Juan Ponce de Leon, & Jaques Cartier.
This is a great station activity or a group activity. Use at the beginning to introduce the concepts or end of a lesson to measure students knowledge of the concepts.
My students enjoyed sorting the various attributes regarding these explorers. They had to rotate to check each others before gluing info in place.
HINT: To save time precut the boxes, mix them up, put them in plastic zip bags and have students to sort the information under the correct title. I glued the colored strip at the top of a piece of construction paper. Then I had students to glue the titles in place before sorting the information.
