Exploring about Explorers!
Here is a great project for your students! Through using nonfiction text features to search through a textbook to find information, students will complete a scavenger hunt about a variety of explorers within Chapter 3 - Age of Exploration. They will then complete each of the arrows on their work pages, cut them out, and transform them into a timeline!
Aligns with Connecticut Social Studies Standard 2:
Create relevant social studies materials such as maps, charts, or displays.
Grade 5: Create a timeline of significant events of a historical period.
(Comes with an answer key and student work sample picture.)
