Amerigo Vespucci. John Cabot. Francis Drake. James Cook. O.k. I suppose even Christopher Columbus.
These big names are worth knowing and during this layers project students have the opportunity to research a famous explorer of their choice!
Each child tries to achieve a certain amount of points in each layer by choosing activities that interest them. By giving students ownership of their learning, engagement goes way up and they learn how to manage their time as well!
If you would like this in a word document (Pages)so you can alter the activities, please just send me a message!
