Want a fun and quick way to learn about the Age of Exploration and its famous explorers? Well, this lesson allows students to learn about the famous explorers of the Age of Exploration by creating baseball cards about them. Students will use their online research skills to study the explorers before creating the card. They will gain a great deal of information about each explorer and have fun designing and creating each card. You can even set up a day to trade cards. My students made rare insert cards such as the Golden Spanish Explorer set. They termed them as limited edition and did not want to trade them as they considered them valuable.
