This product is a great graphic organizer of the major explorers of North and South America. The categories of the chart include: NAME, COUNTRY SAILED FOR, DATE OF EXPLORATION, AREA EXPLORED, and ACCOMPLISHMENT.
I have used this product as guided notes, as a WebQuest, and a homework assignment. All have worked extremely well.
I once even had students do short presentations on of the explorers and the other students used the chart to fill in the information as it was shared by the presenters.
Explorers on chart are:
Leif Ericson, Christopher Columbus, Pedro Alavez Cabral, Amerigo Vespucci, Vasco Nunez de Balboa, Juan Ponce de Leon, Fernidad Magellan, Hernando Cortez, Giovanni de Verrazzano, Fransico Pizarro, Jacques Cartier, Fransico Vasquez de Coronado, Samuel de Champlain, Henry Hudson, Jacques Marquette, Luis Joliet, and Sieuer de La Salle.
