The Explorer: Mungo Park, 1806 - West Africa

The Story: Timbuktu

Join Mungo Park, in 1806, and follow his fateful attempt to navigate the Niger River into ‘darkest Africa’ .  Plagued with dysentery, exhaustion, attacks from wild animals and native bandits, only nine of the original forty-four Europeans survive the journey on land to begin exploration of the river. Hostile natives destroy this expedition before it reaches the Gulf of Guinea.  

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!
