In this set, students examine exploration and explorers in the New World
This set is made up of
*40 individual task cards,
*16 vocabulary cards, and
*1 Explorer comparison chart
*1 Explorer Letter Back Home Writing Activity
*1 Map-making Activity. .
These cards are designed to challenge students of all learning levels, high achievers, as well as the students who struggle, and even SPED kids. I’ve made the cards versatile so that you can use them in many, many combinations and situations. I’ve included some suggestions including: Scoot, stations, exit tickets, tutoring, warm-ups, SSI, homework, group work, just to name a few!
♥These cards are the perfect companion to USA Studies Weekly - Week 1, a weekly magazine subscription purchased online that many schools have adopted as their Social Studies curriculem. https://www.studiesweekly.com/
The first set of cards has open-ended questions.
The second set presents the identical questions in a multiple choice format.
The third part of the set has the questions with the correct answer highlighted in red and underlined for those who will print only in black and white.
The last part of the set has only the correct answer on the card (which can be used to print the answers on the back of the task cards if you wish).
There are also:
*Blank Task Cards
*Student Recording Sheets
*Suggestions on ways to use the task cards
Although these cards are designed to help students meet the 5th Grade TEKS Social Studies Standards and prepare to pass the Texas STAAR, Common Core teachers and teachers of grades 4-6 will also find this resource useful.
