The Explorer: Giovanni da Verrazano, 1525 - North America / Atlantic

The Story: Cape Fear

It’s 1525 when the Italian born adventurer, Giovanni da Verrazano, leaves Dieppe to explore the eastern Atlantic for the French.  He is much loved by the French for his capture of a Spanish treasure galleon.  Violent storms and calm repeat themselves before the expedition reaches land on, what is now, the Carolina’s in North America.  Following the coast south, they are amazed by the beaches, forests, and lack of people.  They eventually turn north to benefit from the northerly current and make land and follow various inlets and bays where they trade with friendly natives, some of whom, introduce them to smoking tobacco.  

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!
