Foldable Friday: Explorers

Last year when I taught the explorers, I had the students write the information down on a chart. This year I wanted to add the interactive component to it. I created these interactive foldable graphic organizers for my 5th graders.

The Spanish explorers graphic organizer covers Christopher Columbus, Hernan Cortes, Francisco de Coronado, Hernando de Soto and Amerigo Vespucci.

The English and Dutch Explorers cover John Cabot, Henry Hudson, and John White.

Jacques Cartier and Samuel de Champlain for the French.

The graphic organizer set also includes posters on each of the explorers.

You can purchase this set in my TpT store, TN store and Tools for School store.
