Product Description
Whether its Columbus Day, or just a Social Studies class, we can enjoy exploring an explorer. Students will choose a world traveler and go in-depth on their journeys and their discoveries. Good for 1-2 class periods in Middle School history classes. Its a combination of a web quest and a thought experiment to explore the world through an explorer's eyes.

I typically follow up this Columbus and explorer research with a debate over the consequences and opportunities of global expansion and colonialism.
