Included in the product are 7 biographies for influential explorers in the Pacific Northwest. I plan to use the biographies with my Explorer Biography Trading Card, which is a freebie and can be found here!
The biographies are written about
*Juan de Fuca
*Bruno de Heceta
*Captain James Cook
The biographies are one page in length for each explorer. The biographies note the exploration, home country, birth and death, as well as other various facts.
They are best fitting for the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Northern California, Western Canada).
Classroom Idea: Divide the students up in 7 groups, one for each explorer. Have the group become the "expert" on one explorer and create the trading card. Then divide the class into 7 new groups, which includes one person to represent each explorer. The students will present on their explorer, teaching their classmates about the impact the explorer has made!
