These cards each include the explorer name, picture, motives for exploring, achievements, years explored, country sailed for, and a map of the route.
The explorers included go along with Tennessee Social Studies standard 4.4. - Christopher Columbus, Ferdinand Magellan, Amerigo Vespucci, Robert de La Salle, Hernando de Soto, Henry Hudson, and Jacques Cartier.
This is a great study tool for interactive notebooks! Just have students glue the two pieces front and back to make them look like trading cards.
