Are you looking for a non-traditional way to allow your students to show what they have learned about an explorer?
This project truly accesses multiple intelligences. Students are given a choice between two different projects, neither of which are your typical paper, poster, or presentation.
Seriously, who wouldn't want to get into the mind of an early explorer and pack their treasure chest or create a game board showing the explorer's voyage and challenges that he faced?
This can be done independently or in groups.
This can be done at school or at home.
Very adaptable to your class!
