History of Explorers

Mrs. Penny Johnson


In this class, students will learn about brave explorers from all over the world. From Leif Erikson to Lewis and Clark to Neil Armstrong – we'll see just what these explorers across the ages have in common. We’ll learn about the obstacles they faced, the challenges they conquered, and the effect they had on the world for generations.


We will chronologically trace the history of exploration through men and women who were courageous and brave. We will study the routes they took, land masses and oceans. We will learn how they faced challenges and setbacks through perseverance and determination.  Students will:


1.  Understand how explorers past and present have a daily effect on our lives

2.  Learn basic world geography and specifics routes of famous expeditions

3.  Learn how we explore the world for ourselves
