In "Six Famous Explorer Disappearances" students examine the lives of six explorers who met their fates on the high seas, jungles, and deserts. The explorers (e.g., George Bass, Percy Fawcett, Sir John Franklin, etc.) are presented in an easily accessible and authoritative website. The website’s “list format” makes it very approachable for most students. This activity has proven to be a useful tool in the writing of paragraphs, essays, and reports.
