On Your Marks:

What is an explorer? Write a definition and find one example of an explorer from history.

Main Task:

Research the explorer. Answer these questions to help you:

  • What did they do?
  • Did their actions affect people?
  • Did they change the way other people think?
  • Do we still remember them?
  • Do we still use their ideas/discoveries?

Push Yourself
