Why are we doing this activity? I thought this was a U.S. History Class!
Well, the desire of people to explore new lands and trade with one another, combined with advancements in the speed of travel and communication, brought the Eastern and Western hemispheres into lasting contact with each other. Some of these adventures took place over a thousand years ago! Learning about what happened in these civilizations gives us some perspective as to how and why people were willing to risk everything to get here.
