Interest is at it's highest peak as students explore the world of explorers. Our highly adaptable unit is broken into four parts with teachers choosing to do all four sections or selecting the parts that best meet the needs of their class. Part one is a structured, knowledge-based section focused on important European explorers from the Vikings to Columbus to Hudson. Students read about each of these explorers and complete a related assignment. Part two focuses on explorers relevant to Canada. Part three contains a series of optional activities and part four contains a collection of seven diagrams depicting each of the explorers. This History lesson provides a teacher and student section with a variety of reading passages, activities, crossword, word search and answer key to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
