Exploration Teaching Suggestions

In addition to the pleasure in reading the exciting, real-life adventures, the list of books offers a variety of sub-sets to use to develop specific skills. Teachers are encouraged to create their own sub-sets to suit their classroom needs.

Several books include maps tracing the paths of the explorers. Using classroom maps with a scale, students can locate the routes and cities, determine total miles covered, and in some cases, the miles per day.

Teachers can introduce a lesson on journal writing with another sub-set of books told all or in part through diaries.

Students might enjoy comparing the exploration of men and women, using a Venn diagram strategy.

There are several pairs of books that enable students of different reading levels to work collaboratively.
