Sixth graders locate and identify the major bodies of water and waterways in the United States. Through a simulation activity, they describe how early explorers would have described their surroundings. Working in groups, they create their own continent and describe the bodies of water that may be on their land.
For this age of exploration worksheet, students respond to seven questions about events described on a timeline ranging from 1400-1664. This worksheet focuses on European exploration and trade routes. Students then explain the role of the Dutch East India Company in European exploration.
