Product Description
This lesson on early explorers gives students a modern-day example of what exploration looks like in today's time period and allows the students to compare and contrast early sea exploration with space exploration.

Students get to read an original article that describes the journey of the astronaut Scott Kelly in comparison with the experiences of Amerigo Vespucci, Christopher Columbus, and others.

After reading the passages, students will answer and discuss comprehension questions and fill out a Venn diagram that will help students understand how modern space exploration and the early Exploration Age compare and contrast.

This is a great article for test-prep and includes both history and ELA concepts!
