The following activity is allows students to step on board one of the early ships and to not only identify the countries and routes taken by selected explorers, but to visualize and apply these exploration routes as they create their own historical maps. (The activity does require prior research on explores to be done, outlined in activity Early Exploration 1470-1500, The Explorers, Who were They?). More importantly it requires students to think and base their routes on their research and not just simply copy the routes from a map that already exists.
Onward for God, Glory and Gold!
