Your students have been hired to make trading cards featuring explorers of the New World!
With this Explorers Trading Card Project your students will either research one explorer and make multiple cards to trade with other students (so each student ends up with at least one of each explorer), or you can have each student make a card for each explorer.
I have included TWO different information sheets for students. One has a listing of eight main explorers that we study in our fourth grade unit. These include: Leif Ericksson, Prince Henry the Navigator, Christopher Columbus, John Cabot, Ferdinand Magellan, Hernando de Soto, Henry Hudson and Robert LaSalle.
The other option included is a sheet that allows you to fill in the names of the explorers and the total number of cards they will create! This gives you flexibility to use the project no matter which explorers you study!
Included in this project:
♦ Student Information sheet with the 8 explorers listed above
♦2nd version of Student Information sheet where you fill in explorer names
♦back of student information sheet with rubrics for self-assessment
♦teacher grading rubrics for each child
♦2 template designs, two sets of each (one with lines, one without!)
There are two rubrics included in this project: ELA and Social Studies.
All of my students have really enjoyed this project and I hope your students do too!
