This is a project for when your class is studying the explorers of the Age of Exploration, such as Columbus, Cortez, and Drake. Students of all grades can use this template to write a job posting for the position of an explorer. They use their knowledge of the explorers to identify traits based on evidence from the expeditions of various explorers to decide which traits are essential to being an explorer. Great project for practicing identifying character traits and using evidence from a history text to justify claims. Rubric for scoring included.
