England's New World Exploration Time Line
Students Create a Time Line of England's Exploration of the Americas
Students use the time line template to outline England's exploration and settlement of the Americas. Students identify important dates in the history of English exploration by major explorers such as Cabot, Frobisher, and Hudson. Students add the years of exploration or settlements and the explorer's name in the text boxes. Students add brief information about the explorations or settlements in the textboxes. Students connect the text boxes to the appropriate dates on the time line with arrows.
