The History Hacker is claiming to be the first pilot to have ever flown around the whole world, but the Learning League knows it's not true! In order to uncover the real pilot who earned that title, they'll have to dig into history. It’s up to you and the League to solve the clues by solving math problems and narrow down who the true pilot is. This Math Adventure will keep your classroom explorers engaged and working hard on math skills, while learning some social studies!
