Grade 6 ~ THE AGE OF EXPLORATION

Grade 6 is starting a new unit ~ THE AGE OF EXPLORATION ~ We will be looking at the different explorers this week and will pick one to create an explorers journal. This will be an individual project with each student researching a person and making up a diary of things the woman or man might have seen, felt, or otherwise experienced. It will include maps, drawings of flora, fauna, and landscapes, as well as charts graphs and entries that are similar to what the explorer might have written.
