This unit centers around the Spanish Explorers of the Americas, and is targeted for the 2nd through 4th grade students. It contains 30 activities, in over 40 pages. To reinforce research skills, book report and website report forms are included along with KWL charts and suggested guiding questions. A map of De Soto's route is included to revisit basic geography skills (such as cardinal points). To extend into math, there are 7 word problem sheets, dealing with regrouping, multiplication and division. There is also an activity to provide students practice in writing out large numbers (in the thousands). Where answer keys apply, they are included. A bonus has been added that may or may not be of value to your 3rd to 5th grade student, but they can color if they would like. It was mainly added if you are homeschooling and have a younger student who wants to feel included. This is a short vowel review hidden picture activity. Students color the short vowel words to reveal a hidden treasure chest (since one of the things the Spanish explorers were seeking is gold).
