Product Description
OBJECTIVE::
To become familiar with the parts of the world explored by the leading European sea captains.

TIME:
2 class periods

This lesson begins with a map exercise that requires class members to use their textbook or an atlas to correctly identify continents, countries, bodies of water, and other areas. You can have the students work individually, or in pairs. Mine love to work in pairs.

Next, there is a Mapwork section that includes a chart with information about fifteen famous explorers of the New World. Starting with Christopher Columbus, students will print the last names of the explorers in boxes on the map, which are located near the areas explored by each person.

The most exciting part of this lesson is THE CONCENTRATION GAME! The class is divided into two teams. Points are scored by remembering which explorers discovered which places in the New World. Complete game rules are provided on the lesson pages.

Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
