We’re finishing up two weeks of exploring the New World. Here are some pictures of what’s available for your use at Simply Lapbooks. There are 9 explorers. These each have a notebook page and two of them have lapbook pieces on their pages.
About the essay: I put this in the notebooking pages file. I wrote the introduction, conclusion and the topic sentences for the body. My daughter typed in the detail sentences for the middle paragraphs. I put this in without the picture so that there would be enough room to write in the sentences by hand.
We used the books we had on hand (no English library here) and the internet A LOT.
Enchanted learning has pages on the explorers:
There’s an interactive map of the explorers’ routes here:
You can print out a world map of any size here:
I printed us out a map of the world on 4 sheets of paper and attached it to the wall as one big map. The kids drew on the routes with colored pencils and with the same color wrote the explorer’s name on a list in the corner of the map to make the key for the map.
