This website contains numerous resources for teachers that are helpful as students begin to learn about explorers. There are timelines that outline the sequence of the most important explorers in our past. These timelines can be displayed on bulletin boards or may be used for part of a lesson. In addition, there are printable cutouts for an “explorer word wall.” Creating a word wall on explorers can help students learn to recognize and identify major historical figures. In addition to things for the classroom, there are several activities, worksheets, and games that can support student learning. For each major explorer, there are short biographies along with printable activities. This website offers something for every 4th grade social studies classroom!
