The explorer: Vasco de Gama, 1497 - Africa/Asia

The story: Exotic Fruits and Fish
Follow the ultimate seaman, Vasco de Gama, and his crew in 1497 as they weather ferocious storms before finally rounding west Africa past the Cape of Good Hope. Heading north along the coast of East Africa into tropical waters, they venture due east towards India and eventually open the first sea route, for trade, between India and Europe.

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!
