Product Description
OBJECTIVE::
To introduce little known facts about the heroes of the Age of Exploration.

TIME:
1 class period

The names of fifteen explorers appear on the three pages of this activity.

• Leif Ericson
• Bartolomeu Dias
• Vasco da Gama
• Christopher Columbus
• John Cabot
• Amerigo Vespucci
• Vasco Nunez de Balboa
• Ponce de Leon
• Hernando Cortes
• Francisco Pizarro
• Jacques Cartier
• Hernando de Soto
• Samuel de Champlain
• Henry Hudson
• Robert La Salle

After each name, there are statements with little known facts about the courageous explorer who long ago made exciting voyages of discovery. But some sentences also contain information that is not true about the explorers. Students must decide which statements seem to be true, and which ones sound as if they are false.

Class members with the most "lucky guesses" are the winners of this contest.

Teacher Instructions and answer key included.
