In Social Studies, students will begin to learn about the Age of Exploration. Students will be learning how to take detailed notes about the explorers, focusing on country of origin, purpose for exploration, and area explored. Additionally, students will learn about technological developments that made sea exploration possible.
Students will also learn about obstacles and accomplishments of the explorers and learn the reasons why Europeans chose to explore and colonize the world.
Lastly, we will create a project that displays information on explorers in an artistic way.
Our unit 2 test will be on Friday, November 3rd.
