This activity asks students to view two websites on 4 explorers from the Age of Exploration. One of the websites provides incorrect information, helping students to realize that not all information on the internet is correct!
Students will also view the correct information on explorers such as Balboa, Columbus, Vespucci, and da Gama. Comparison prompts are also included to promote critical thinking.
