Explorer Trading Cards Project:We will be doing research on Explorers.
Use the documents below to plan and organize your Explorer Trading Card. You will find directions, a trading card template, a scoring sheet and a final writing activity. You can copy and paste these documents to your folder in the H drive. Remember to name any of your documents with your username to personalize your file.
