There are many people throughout history who had the spirit of an adventurer and decided to explore the unknown. In some cases, they risked their lives to make their contributions recognized by the world. From Columbus’ discovery of the Americas to Hillary’s quest up Mount Everest, the names of these great pioneers will remain important for centuries to come as the most famous explorers of all time.
In the second week of UOI 5 , we continue our learning about exploration.
The students did a lot of research about the explorers. They collect the facts about the explorers’ early life, the major discoveries, the routes, reasons of exploration, and the consequence of the exploration to people and societies. Each group become an expert of one period of exploration, then explain it to the class using power point presentation or picture.
