Let your students' imaginations soar as they travel around the world with these legendary explorers. Exploring during the Age of Exploration was fraught with violence and danger as well as thrilling discoveries and beautiful lands. Kids will be introduced to the complex issues of land ownership and political intrigue, as well as the interconnections between the history of a people and the history of the land that they called their own.
Born at the end of the Age of Exploration, Henry Hudson attempted to find a shortcut to Asia by way of the Arctic Ocean, a journey that ended at the Hudson River (named in his honor). Students will be thrilled as they read about great whales, dangerous icebergs and whirlpools, and the mutiny that caused Hudson's disappearance.
