“During a period of only 150 years, the travels of three remarkable explorers – one European, one African, and one Asian – expanded our understanding of vast parts of the world. Start by reading the three biographies and watching the video clips that go along with each for extra detail. As you do so, start to consider how many of the following qualities each man possessed. Next, your teacher will divide the class into three teams, each focusing on a different explorer. Each team should focus on completing as many cells in the appropriate column of this table by explaining how their explorer demonstrated these attributes”
