This piece includes my teaching plan which integrates GLAD, Thinking Maps, small groups, jigsaw, and various other strategies to teach your children about Explorers. We use this for 5th grade CA standards. You can incorporate this into any text you already have.
Then you are provided with a choice project where the children will choose their individual learning style to demonstrate to your their knowledge on a specific explorer. A rubric is provided for you to use when grading.
This is an easy and fun unit to get kids engaged and learning about how they learn. Providing choice in how they demonstrate their project brings instant engagement and very creative end results.
