The Explorer: Duarte Pacheco Periera, 1488 - West Africa

The Story: Stolen Ship

Join the crew of Duarte Pacheco Periera, in 1488, as they explore the coast and jungle interior of West Africa in search of the rumored Christian kingdom of Prester John.  On the off shore island of Principe, they leave their ship unattended overnight to seek medical aid for their sicknesses, only to wake up in the morning to find their ship is gone.  

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!
