Product Description
Note-taking made easy! This Explorers Note-taking Graphic Organizer allows students to take notes on the explorers they are studying in two formats on the same page.

When teaching this content in my classroom, I realized that some of my students struggled writing down notes in the traditional way and then trying to memorize the information. I also know that writing down information more than once helps promote memory. On this product, students take notes in a traditional format, and then they transfer this information into the visual graphic organizer, as well. They then can also look up the country the explorer worked for and decorate the flag at the top of the ship accordingly. My students liked having the visual to help them remember the information.

You will need to make one copy of the graphic organizer for each explorer studied.

Students will need to research to find or take class notes on the following information:

♦ Explorer
♦ Years explored
♦ Country that sponsored explorer (country's flag)
♦ Reasons for exploring
♦ Obstacles that got in the way
♦ Accomplishments

Differentiation could include...

→ Students can take notes during classroom instruction.
→ Students can research the information in a small group or individually on each
