The Explorer: Muhammad Ibn Battuta, 1325 - North Africa / Arabia

The Story: Camel Thieves

Follow the Journey of the young Muhammad Ibn Battuta, at age 21, after he leaves college in Morocco to explore his world.  On a donkey, he joins others and traverses mountain and desert across North Africa.  Along the pirate infested Barbary Coast they are blasted by the great Sirocco winds and fight off camel thieves.  Onto Cairo and the pyramids, but down the Red Sea he is stopped from crossing by a rebellion against the rulers and is forced to follow a major detour to Damascus.  Eventually, he travels to Mecca by caravan, and completes his Hajj.

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!
