PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource is for a unit on European exploration to use with your social studies students. Students will learn about the colonies the European nations started in the United States such as New France, New Spain, New England and New Amsterdam. Students will read about famous explorations such as John Cabot, Sir Francis Drake, Giovanni de Verrazano, Jacques Cartier, Samuel Champlain, Robert La Salle, Ferdinand Magellan, and Henry Hudson.

It includes
• a ten-page nonfiction packet on European colonization in the United States with an activity
• a nonfiction reading passage on the Columbian Exchange with comprehension questions
• two reading activities to use with the picture book Encounter by Jane Yolen
• a nonfiction reading packet that discusses the six reasons the European explorers explored
• a review matching game
• an assessment.

This unit was designed and used with my seventh-grade special education social studies classes.

This product includes colored versions, black line masters, and answer keys.
