The Explorer: Amerigo Vespucci, 1497 - South America / North

The Story: Drinkable Sea Water

Join Amerigo Vespucci and his crew in 1497 as they sail south from Spain into violent weather and ocean sand storms.  They negotiate the doldrums onto the northern coast of South America and experience the amazing phenomenon of drinking ocean water.  His documented journeys and written reports of the western lands had European publishers naming the continents after him, America.

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!
