The Explorer - Journey 1: Bartholomew Diaz, 1487 - West Africa

The Story: Sand Dunes

The Explorer - Journey 2: Bartholomew Diaz, 1488 - South East Africa

The Story: Freight Train Winds

Follow the three vessels commanded by Bartholomew Diaz in 1487, from Portugal down the west coast of Africa.  Join them, as they marvel at the sight of the massive sand dunes along the Skeleton Coast, so named for the ribs of shipwrecked boats pointing into the sky.  They travel into unknown waters and a ferocious storm, which capsizes two vessels and then pushes the third into the Antarctic ice flows. Eventually, to their amazement and joy, they escape to the north east around Africa.

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!
