    Erica- Here are some suggestions for energizing your areas of study.....
    For geography and explorers, use a pirate study. I teach latitude, longitude etc. during this unit as well as compass making.
    Have students pick a pirate persona, create a flag, name their ship, make a treasure map and write their adventure. Perhaps they could meet a famous explorer like Magellan.
    For Colonial America, scholastic.com has lots of good resources.
    For Latin America- have your children do a " Dia de Los Muertos" project. This holiday was originated by the Aztecs and is a way to honor those who have died. There are lots of websites with fun activities.
    Hope this helps.
