The Explorer: John Cabot, 1497 - North America / Canada

The Story: Grand Banks

Follow John Cabot, a.k.a. Giovanni Caboto, an Italian explorer commissioned by Henry VII of England, and his crew. In 1497 they sail west from England through dense fog into the northern latitudes past great floating ice mountains in search of a short route to Cathay (Asia). Eventually, further west, they discovered milder waters, so full of fish, that they could almost walk on the teaming surface.
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!
