This project includes 2 components: an explorer passport and 3 explorer maps. This project should take several weeks to complete as students study the different explorers. I geared this activity towards Georgia's 4th grade GPS on explorers, especially Columbus, Cartier, Hudson, Ponce de Leon, Cabot and Balboa. I also included extra-credit opportunities like studying additional explorers for the passport. Students will be required to make 3 different maps, showing the English, Spanish and French routes. I plan to grade students on their passports, maps and a total project grade.
