Explorers

January 8, 2010 at 10:30 pm 4 comments

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.

Each page has a lead in of differing lengths that I typed in and then my daughter had to fill in the rest.

Each page has pictures, usually a map and a portrait.

Here's one of the "lapbook" pages. These are both lift-the-flap pieces.

A five paragraph essay about the colony at Roanoke that Raleigh established.

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.

    Thanks, Marie. The last page there isn’t so much about exploring, but it serves as our transition to Pilgrims. Thanks for leaving a comment. Being up with the little guy at 1:30 in the morning is more fun when there’s a comment to respond to 🙂

    Wow, thank you for the links, I’ll check them out.
    Not to make my SECOND comment the same as my first (CM-oriented), but it seems this is very similar to our Book of Centuries, except that the BoC takes less paper. Nevertheless, they reach the same purpose – a record of what was done by who and when.
