Attached are descriptions and rubrics for 3 different Texas Explorers. After learning about the major explorers who traveled through Texas, students will choose a project to complete. You can assign all three, or have students choose. The projects are based on the journies of Columbus, Cortez, Coronado, Cabeza de Vaca and La Salle.
The first page is a brief description of each project, followed by a rubric for each project. Students will follow the requirements of the rubric and turn in with the completed project.
This assignment can be completed during social studies or the language arts block.
