We’ve come to the last leg of our expedition. For several weeks, we’ve been meeting little-known explorers and traveling with them over mountains of ice and through valleys of sand. This week we conclude our journey with Abel Tasman, Francisco de Ulloa, George Vancouver, Samuel Wallis, Francisco Xeres, Yermack Timofeyevich, and an explorer who traveled the Zambezi River. There are a few questions to get you thinking and some space to record your answers. There are also some notebooking pages at the end of the printable to write down other things you learn about the explorers and their destinations. One page is blank; the other four are themed so you can give each explorer a sheet that is related to the types of places he visited, if you’d like.
So grab a compass, a map, and maybe an encyclopedia. And get ready to rediscover the history of explorers.
