Here is a free file of my European Explorer Common Core Unit. The individual cards can be used with any explorer. The 'reasons for exploration flip chart' also applies to all nations. I teach fifth grade and we focus on European Explorers, however, these few pages could span for different countries.
If you like these pages, check out my big European Explorers Common Core unit. I used this unit and all the interactive foldables, activities, projects with internet reading sources, our supplemental text and trade books. (85 pages for $6.00) Plus, if you would like to have any additional activity, email me and I'm your genie.)
