The Explorer: Alfonso de Albuquerque, 1506 - East Africa / India / Sumatra

The Story: Vanquish the Sultan

Follow the adventures of Alfonso de Albuquerque of Portugal, who, in 1506, with 5 ships, plunders the east coast of Africa and the Persian Gulf.  With the King’s secret warrant, he deposes the viceroy of India. At Malacca, he instigates and wins violent battles with the local Sultans and demands that the subjugated peoples convert to Christianity, leave the area, or be executed.

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!
