The Explorer: Eric the Red / Lief Ericson, circa 1000AD - North America / Canada

The Story: Long Boats

Follow longboats out into the freezing ocean of the north Atlantic manned by the untamable and fearless Norsemen. A thousand years ago they ventured from Scandinavia, to Iceland to Greenland and onto the shores of North America and were quite possibly the first Europeans to set foot on North American soil.

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!
