This is a five- to seven-day creative research unit on Early Explorers of America. Students work in cooperative groups to research an early explorer and create a Museum in a Box. The Museum in a Box includes a museum plaque, explorer's map, explorer's journal, a timeline, and artifacts. When you purchase this item you will receive the entire Museum in a Box PowerPoint unit as well as unit lesson plans written in Explicit Direct Instruction (EDI) format.
This product is designed to be used after you have taught the SC Explorers Unit, and serves to deepen the students' understanding of the explorers.
