Finishing Our Explorer Projects

Here is the assignment for the Explorer Project that was first posted on Mrs. Lee’s blog. I’m reposting it here so you can double check that you’ve got all the elements that the directions ask for before you hand it in. Please see me if you need any help with checking over your writing, or if you need any help with Book Creator, Skitch, or exporting and sharing your final project.
