The Explorer: Hernan Cortez, 1519 - Mexico

The Story: War Dogs

Join Hernan Cortez in his conquest of the Aztec empire in 1519.  First he sinks his fleet in the Bay of Campeche and then marches his 500 men inland in search of riches. With guns, horses, war dogs and treachery, he spreads fear before him and leaves unknown sickness in his wake, decimating the native population.

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!
