Title: Explorers Introduction:


1
Explorers Introduction
  • One morning you woke up and found out all
    textbooks on the European Explorers were wiped
    out! Your school has asked all fifth-grade
    students to help fill in the pages in order to
    create new textbooks. To do so you must conduct
    your own investigation using computer-based
    research.

2
Task
  • Each student is to work independently on their
    research.
  • Using the internet, research information on your
    explorer.
  • Record the answers of each question on your
    explorer in your social studies notebook.
  • After you have finished your research, you will
    make a giant-sized text book page to create a new
    text book on the explorers.

3
Process
  • Each student will have one explorer to research.
  • Using the list below, choose only one explorer.
  • Below the name of each, are web links to assist
    you in your research.
  • Using the information, answer the questions
    pertaining to your explorer.
  • Be sure to answer each question in complete
    sentences.
  • Again, Good Luck!
