Reformation Favourite Living Books
When we incorporated a unit study on Explorers, we really loved using the Bellerophon A Coloring Book of Great Explorers . This has a good summary on many great explorers and a page to colour. Then, find a good resource book on explorers as a base (such as Explorers (Usborne Book Of...) ) and a good reference on the ships of the day (such as Ship by Macaulay) and use your library. You will find a heap there!
Characters to look for are: John Cabot, Vasco da Gama, Amerigo Vespucci, Balboa, Ponce de Leon, - to the Spaniards spreading into the west: Hernando Cortes, (1500s') - read information on the Aztecs, Ferdinand Magellan (first around the world), Cabeza de Vaca (Florida to Pacific Ocean on foot), Pizzaro (1533) (Spanish conquistadore) - research Incas, De Soto (N.America), Juan Ortiz, Francisco Coronado (1541).
