The Explorers Unit
This unit was designed to engage the learner in hands on activities such as discussions involving decision making and goal setting that incorporate the historical locations and situations faced by real explorers of the United States. At the end of the activity, a realistic understanding of what effected the discovery and settlement of early America will be reached. Each group has a visual of the areas their corollary explorer encountered their individual explorer is revealed at the end. A power point is included to guide the class through the activities as well as packets that can be printed for individual groups’ reference.
