The Explorer - Journey 2: Abel Tasman, 1642 - Australasia / Indonesia

The Story: Death Ship

Follow the two part journey of the great Dutch seaman Abel Tasman.  He leaves Indonesia and heads south west towards Africa to catch the Roaring 40’s and be blown east to find Tasmania and New Zealand.  On New Zealand his landing party are ferociously and unexpectedly attacked by chanting Maori Warriors, and 4 were killed immediately.  Fearing that this reception would be the same everywhere on these islands, they kept off the coast and soon ran out of food and water.  Eventually,  they are able to resupply and rest on the friendly island of Tonga before returning to Indonesia.

These 2 Journeys of Discovery include:

  • 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 single 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!
