PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Early Explorer Autobiography Project: If I Was an Explorer… This is a writing project for students who are studying the Age of Exploration. In this 21-page resource, students combine social studies and writing skills to compose an autobiography. They will write from the first person point of view, as if they are one of the explorers from the age of exploration. This is a great way to incorporate expository writing into social studies or vice versa.

The following materials are included to help you every step of the way:

Organizer/ List of Questions about explorers to guide research– This is a two-paged document that your students can use to record their information as they research. The questions are aligned with the pages of the autobiography.

Writing Page Templates for Autobiography– These pages are decorative and include lines for your students to write. Specific pages are below:
Cover Pages- There are four different versions of the cover page so that students can choose which style they like best.
My Life Page- This page is a place for students to write general details about their explorer’s life.
My Journey Page- This pages is for detailed information about the explorer’s journey/journeys.
Map Page– This is a page where students draw the route(s) that their explorers took.
My Discoveries Page- This is a page for students to write about any discoveries their explorers made on their journeys.

Example of Completed Autobiography
