The Explorer: The Polo Brothers, 1260 - Asia / West to East

The Story: The Celestial Mountains

Civil War and political turmoil drive two Italian merchant brothers to seek their fortunes in trade with eastern countries along the silk route, a 7000 mile journey. They develop a relationship with a royal emissary  who encourages them to travel through the vast Gobi Desert and along the Celestial Mountains to the new court of the Great Khan at Beijing. Marco Polo is the son of Niccolo.

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!
