Teach about the explorers of the Western Hemisphere with this 5+ week, no-prep unit on European Exploration. It includes a discussion on indigenous peoples and the African slave trade. You will be provided with lesson plans, a student workbook and accompanying interactive notebook (activity lapbook), a PowerPoint for teacher-guided instruction, and an end-of-unit assessment. The student workbook is also Google 1:1 compatible. Reading and literacy skill building activities are built-in to the student workbook and encouraged throughout the unit (You can also buy the Student Workbook as a stand-alone resource by CLICKING HERE).
