This introduces the six explorers in the Georgia 4th grade curriculum in a fun inquiry lesson. It includes Columbus, Hudson, Cabot, DeLeon, Balboa, Cartier...but not by name, just by situation. There are 6 activity groups. Each group is given a different explorer situation and asked to make decisions about their journey: food, dangers, etc. The kids love thinking about the possible situations an explorer had to face! Aligned with GA 4th grade social studies standards.
