PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

European Explorers.....Make a research poster book of all 6 explorers or have students research just one!

If you have taught European explorers before then you know it is a lot of information for kids to remember. Because of that, I have tried to set the book pages up with the important categories of the info. they need to know. With that said, you may have other objectives your students need to know based on what state you are in, so please look closely and decide if these will work for you.

This explorers book can be used when you are first introducing the explorers or as a review, especially before state testing time.

Note: I call it a book because I have included a cover for the book, but you do not have to use it as a book if you don't want to.

In using this explorer book, You could have your students research to find the info. by using books from the library. If you are using this as a review, you could have the kids look back over notes in their social studies journal in order to fill in the information. Be creative and use it however you would like.

This book includes:

**Cover page for the book
**Suggestions from me
**an organizer poster that focus on 7 main reasons Europeans explored
**A teacher note page to help students fill in the info on the organizer
**Explorer poster page for 6 explorers
(Henry Hudson, Christopher Columbus, John Cabot, Jacques Cartier, Vasco Nunez de Balboa, Juan Ponce de Leon)
**BLANK page for other explorers (you would use one for each explorer)

On each poster, students will fill in the following:

**Name of Explorer
**Color the picture (on the blank poster, they draw the picture)
**Dates they explored
**Sponsored by what country
**Purpose in exploring
**Obstacles
**Character traits
** of voyages
**Achievements
**Interesting Facts
**Show the path of their voyage on the world map

Hover your mouse over the thumbnail above to see what the poster pages look like.
