Welcome to my Microsoft Publisher Project, Famous Explorers. My students are so excited about this project. It includes lots of information about many different explorers from Christopher Columbus to Neil Armstrong, a personal favorite of mine. As you can see in the title page, we used Word Art, with a picture inserted, Clip Art and a text box!! We aren't even in the main part of the booklet yet!! Lots of computer instruction in addition to explorer knowledge going on here!! This goes right along with the expeditionary learning theme for 4th and 5th grade this year. On pages 2 and 3 of our booklet, the students are picking 2 different explorers to research and write articles on. On page 4, they get to be the explorer. They can explore anywhere they want but they have to tell why they picked that place, how they will get there and what they need to take with them. They can even invent something that will make their exploration easier!! How cool is that?? One of my students want to travel to the center of the earth! I can't wait to see how that goes. As always with my projects, you not only learn about the subject matter but also get step by step instruction on how to create the computer project, in this case, a booklet in Publisher. Think of it as a "Computers for Dummies", not that I am calling any of you dummies, book with lots of famous explorer learning thrown in. Please consider purchasing this and other units in my store. As you can see, most all of my reviews are 4's. Happy learning everyone!!
