Explorers task cards are a great way to review or assess your students' knowledge of European Explorers and their colonization of America. With 20 multiple choice questions students are sure to be challenged to think about their learning.

Some ideas for using these cards are:

Test prep and review


As a center

Partner work

Small group review or activity

Independent work

Scavenger hunt (My personal favorite-hang the cards in random order all around the room. Students hunt for each card and record their answers.)

Play a whole class game such as Scoot

Play Quiz-Quiz-Trade

I LOVE to include task cards in my classroom routine because there are so many ways to use them!
