This excellent activity for elementary students features everything you need for a great lesson on Ponce de Leon
, his accomplishments, and his search for the Fountain of Youth!
Included in your download is a 1 page reading on Ponce de Leon that is easy for students to understand while also covering all of the places he explored and why. Accompanying this is a set of Common Core-aligned reading comprehension questions for students to answer. A key for this is included for your convenience.
Two extension activities are included as well! First is an Interactive Notebook-style graphic organizer which students cut out and use to describe why someone might want to remain young and find a Fountain of Youth. This allows students to list the things they like about being young and what they think Ponce de Leon would have liked.
Last is an outline map of Florida and the Caribbean on which students can trace his voyages and annotate the map with details about each place based on what they read.
This is definitely a fun activity that allows for student creativity while also hitting Common Core reading strategies!
