The Explorer: Alvaro de Mendana de Neira & Perdo Sarmiento de Gamboa, 1567 - South Pacific

The Story: Floating on Liquid Air
Join two Spanish vessels in 1567 on their 8000 mile sail across the Pacific through tropical waters, as clear as air. They almost make Australia, but captain and navigator, argue so much that they return to Peru, against their orders, and a fraction short of making that great discovery and claiming the lands for Spain.

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!
