PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Both Christopher Columbus and John Cabot thought they had made it to Asia. It can be very difficult to know where you are without a map. This activity enables students to experience how difficult that task was for the early explorers and why there was such confusion.
In this mapmaking challenge, students will be blindfolded and will need to create a map using their senses just as the early explorers needed to do.
Includes a reflection paper for assessment.
