European Explorers

To compare how the Spanish, French, and English approached the exploration of North America, class groups examine primary source documents and become experts on one of four explorers: Francisco Coronado, Robert LaSalle, Samuel de Champlain, or John Cabot. Groups gather evidence of how the explorers dealt with cultural differences encountered, the climate, and the use of resources. Then they share their findings with the whole class. A carefully crafted resource that deserves a place in your curriculum library.
