The Explorer: Ponce de Leon, 1513 - North America / Florida

The Story: Flying Fish

Join the 3 ships of Juan Ponce de Leon, in 1513, sailing from Puerto Rico. His quest, to find the lands north of Cuba and possibly the fabled ‘Fountain of Youth’. They land on Florida, which he names La Florida, close to present day Daytona.  He then follows and charts the coast south, around the keys. They experience flying fish, large manatee, and try not to run aground amongst the sand bars and mango groves.

This Journey of Discovery includes:

  • an educator information page with anticipated learning outcomes
  • a world projection map, a telescoped map of the explored area and a compass

  • a list of journeys and their explorers

The Journeys are all:

  • in greyscale.

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!
