Today, we are going to be looking at the other explorers, the ones that actually landed and explored the United States. We will find out what country they sailed for, where they were trying to go and where they actually landed and the land that they claimed.
With your TEAM (that means 3-4 of you!) discuss what other countries were involved in the great race to claim all the land that they really thought was Asia, but was actually the US AND see how many explorers you can name. (Extra credit- if you can match explorers to the countries that they sailed for!)
Just a note - we are getting close to the end of Unit 1, so there will more than likely be a QUIZ this FRIDAY! Be ready .... and remember you heard it here first!!
