All About Explorers

This is my favorite website for information about explorers! This website is comprehensive and has so many fun activities that can help create a fun social studies lesson. The first tab that this website has is a list of famous explorers – there is essential information about each explorer in an easy to read format. There is also an internet treasure hunt, where students can explore around the internet in order find out more about the explorers; there are Big Questions about the resources that the Treasure Hunt pages provides, so students are given the chance to think critically about the information that they are processing, which will become a life-long skill that they will need. Students can also embark on a WebQuest to go on another adventure and put themselves in the position to choose which explorer should deserve their own website. Finally there is a resource tab for teachers, where they can get more information about the WebQuest lesson.
