    1) EXPLORER PROJECT:  YOUR CHOICE USING THE MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES

    Directions:  This time, YOU get a choice in how you present information on your explorer.  Read the options below, then choose the one you will complete.

    DUE:  Thursday, November 29/ 50-point project

    • Verbal/Linguistic:

    Conduct a 3-5 minute interview with your explorer.  He should share his life history from birth to death.  Have him explain the pros and cons of his exploration for both his sponsoring country and the Native Americans he encountered.

     

    You can be the interviewer or the explorer.  Someone else (a classmate or family member) will be the other person.  You may video the interview or present it live.

     

    To exceed standard, dress in costume and practice an accent for your role.

     

    • Logical/Mathematical:

    Create a time sequence chart with titles and descriptions for each date in your explorer’s life to death.  The final project should be in ink.  The sequence should have at least 10 events with good descriptions of why those events were important.

     

    To exceed standard, add more events and include drawings or pictures.

     

    • Spatial:

    Paint a mural on a sheet of poster board.  It must include key elements of your explorer’s life.  Place a “plaque” on the front (like at a museum) highlighting the explorer’s name and key life events.

     

    To exceed standard, include a description on the back of why you chose these elements to highlight his life.

     

    • Bodily-Kinesthetic:

    Learn a dance from your explorer’s period of history.  Teach it to the class.

     

    To exceed standard, wear a costume of the time period.

                                                    -or-

    Devise a scavenger hunt with 5 stops around the school for your explorer’s life.  Each stop must have a clue or riddle to lead students there. Tie in/connect locations around the school with stages of your explorer’s life.  (For example, have us stop at the cafeteria to describe what foods the explorer imported to his sponsoring country.)

     

    To exceed standard, take us the playground map and describe your explorer’s route using a yardstick or pointer.

     

    • Musical:

    Create a 3-5 minute radio program with music from your explorer’s sponsoring country and his time period.  You can burn a CD or have clips ready to play.  Use DJ (disc Jockey) lingo when you present the songs, pretending you are back in time.

     

    To exceed standard, you can dress in that time period or play music from that time on your own instrument.

     

    • Interpersonal:

    Lead a productive (no yelling) 3-5 minute debate between your explorer and a Native American he would have come across.  Have a list of questions to ask each player about why it was okay or not to take land in the “New World.”  Ask Evaluation/Why questions versus Yes/No questions.

     

    To exceed standard, dress in time period garb and discuss a compromise the explorers and Native Americans might have made.

     

    • Intrapersonal:

    Write 1-2 pages on “How I’d be different if I’d grown up in my explorer’s culture and time period.”  Choose four (4) of the following categories and explain how your home, family, food, culture, medicine, transportation, jobs, education, and gender would have affected your life back then.

     

    To exceed standard:  Choose 2-4 of the remaining topics and describe those, as well.
