European Explorers Vocabulary Word Sort is a great way for students to review the 6 European Explorers that are the focus of 4th Grade Georgia Social Studies (Columbus, Ponce de Leon, Cabot, Hudson, Cartier, Balboa). By sorting these terms and characteristics into categories, students can review the information in a new and meaningful way. This activity aligns with the Georgia Performance Standards for Social Studies in the 4th grade. It is great to use during your Exploration unit, or as a review for high-stakes testing or (CRCT test). This activity may work for other states as well.
