The Teacher Notes pages are loaded with detailed descriptions and step by step processes to help guide you through this unit. I have taught this Explorer Research Project numerous times over the years and this organization keeps things moving very smoothly.
I love teaching about Early Explorers! It’s a really fun topic for the students as well as myself!
