 ARTSEDGE: Explorers' Experience
Explain that explorers had many motivations for their endeavors: searching for riches, a desire for adventure, nationalism, etc. Through their efforts, they discovered things about the world that had been previously unknown to their societies.
Explorers had to document their journeys carefully and accurately so that they, or others, could replicate their paths.
Therefore, explorers not only had to trace their route, but also identify "markers" along the way, such as landforms, bodies of water, topography, etc. Tell the students that their task is to create a three-dimensional map to represent the explorer’s journey as accurately as possible.
