This page is a well written, incredibly detailed resource for teaching students about European Explorers during the years of 1400-1600. There is a list of every important explorer that you want your students to know about, as well as a graphic organizer that includes their name, where they are from, what their life span was, and what their motivation for travel was. It would serve as an awesome print out for students to take home and study for an exam. I am printing this for myself to use in my own unit one day!
