Students analyze how differently the world looked to various groups of people at different times in history in a range of geographic locations by creating a variety of historical maps. They will choose from 16 different geographic locations and time periods ranging from 6000 BCE through 2015. They will then answer 6 discussion/reflection questions. Prompts are included to get students on the right track with designing their maps. There is an academic component to the back of each map detailed on the handout. Time permitting, there is a whole class timeline and presentation option included in the handout.

Sample questions include:

--Identify and describe at least 3 technology items needed to successfully explore beyond your known world.

--Compare and contrast the supportive and disbelieving reception explorers might have had when they went home and detailed their discoveries.

--Do you think there are any major explorations or discoveries left in the world? If so what might they be? If not, why is that so?
