The Story: Pirate Fleet

In the year 1405, we join the massive Chinese trade fleet carrying 27,000 men in 62 wooden ships, the 4 largest of which were 400 feet long and 160 feet wide.  The fleet was commanded by the eunuch Admiral, Cheng Ho .  They set out to develop trade and relationships with their neighbors to the west, even as far as India.  They utilize advanced navigation techniques to keep their fleet together.  Unfortunately, they are followed by pirates and suffer from running attacks.  This culminates in a major battle with a full pirate fleet off the coast of Sumatra.

These 2 Journeys of Discovery include:

  • 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 single 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!
