This project is perfect to get students motivated while assessing their understanding of the European Explorer Era.
Instead of just assigning a boring book report or biography, students will be given a list of options to choose from!
Option 1- You are a king and must create an advertisement to attract explorers
Option 2- You are an explorer sailing the seas and decide to write a rap/song.
Option 3- You are an explorer and create your own Facebook page to keep in touch with your friends.
Option 4- You are a bird that sees everything. Draw a cartoon of what you saw when the Europeans landed on the "New Land".
Option 5- You are a news reporter and your job is to interview a famous explorer.
Option 6- You are an explorer sailing the seas and write a poem.
Students are given 6 options to choose from to demonstrate their understanding of the Early Explorers during the Age of Exploration.
Students will be able to show off their creativity and take ownership while doing it.
