Description

Class Experience

Students will examine the motives of explorers as well as the modes of transportation, routes, and major historical events during their journeys. 
This class is a fantastic opportunity for students ages 8-13 to learn just how interesting history and geography can be. As an elementary social studies teacher, I have a variety of strategies to encourage students to delve deeper into content. 
A great resource to supplement this course is the Scholastic Atlas of Exploration, an intermediate/middle school-level paperback resource that has 2-4 page segments on each explorer and journey. The author is Dinah Starkey. This resource is not required, however!

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This is an age-appropriate class that focuses on history and geography. However, there are times when this course will briefly discuss wars, conquest, and religious practices of various civilizations.
