The Explorer: Gonzalo Pizarro, 1541 - South America / Peru

The Story: El Dorado

Join Gonzalo Pizarro in 1541, as he, commanding 200+ Spaniards and 4000 natives, ventures from a city in the sky in the Andes Mountains east searching for El Dorado.  Out of the mountains, they encounter dense Amazonian jungle, wild animals and torturous insects.  Most die or desert the expedition, and Pizarro returns to the mountains with only 80 men.  His second in command continues by boat, down river to explore the Amazon.

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!
