I changed up the way I have my fourth graders write about explorers this year, and I wanted to share the graphic organizers I used.
I created a notebook for students to write facts about the different explorers we studied as a class. I left extra pages for students to do individual research. We focused on recording reasons the explorers travelled.
I used the five paragraph essay structure for students to complete this assignment. To download all the organizers and rubrics I used, please visit this post on the Artistry of Education blog.
