Standard

The Social Studies books come with decks of cards. The teachers use them for all sorts of things. I like to use them for portraits. For fourth grade, we looked at the early CAlifornia Explorers. For fifth grade, they look at the explorers of the world. I have had the students use chalk pastel, colored pencil or marker for this lesson.

They frame their portraits in interesting borders and use a name ribbon across the picture so that viewers know who the explorer is.

Student used the social studies cards for reference or they could find other images of their explorer.
