The Explorer: Vasco Nunez de Balboa, 1519 - Central America / Panama

The Story: Howler Monkeys

Follow the Journey of Vasco Nunez de Balboa and his men in 1519, as they battle ferocious native warriors, dense jungle, deadly insects and wild animals across Central America. Their exploration and conquest become perhaps the most important short journey of discovery ever made.

This Journey of Discovery includes:

  • the story (in both Script and Arial fonts), with ‘outside the box’ word clues and without clues for early readers
  • an educator information page with anticipated learning outcomes
  • a world projection map, a telescoped map of the explored area and a compass
  • the clues and solution
  • a list of journeys and their explorers

The Journeys are all:

  • in greyscale.
  • PDF downloadable.

Our resources encourage interaction and fun while introducing locations, weather/social conditions, cities, countries, seas, oceans and continents.  They demonstrate the use of compass points for direction and the use of longitude and latitude ... your students won’t even know it’s a lesson.  In addition, they provide a portrayal of an actual historic journey - please note that the identity of the explorer is not mentioned in the story as it is part of the solution for you to share with your class!
