The Explorer: Joannes de Plano, 1245 - Europe / Asia

The Story: The Golden Horde

Follow the aging monk, Joannes de Plano, who, in his sixties, at the request of the Pope, traveled from France to Mongolia on foot, by carriage and horse, through the wild Mongol Hordes.  Tied to a prairie horse, through the Golden Horde, around sea, across desert and over mountains, he reached the capital of the Great Khan.  He returned safely to write the first comprehensive European study about Eastern society.

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!
