  • This is to introduce the topic of explorers and see how much the students already know. I would incorporate some of their comments into the lecture.
  • This is going to begin showing the information about Columbus and a few other explorers for them to learn about.
  • Neil Armstrong is a hyperlink. If you click him, he shows a youtube clip.
  • This is to introduce the concept that explorers would be pretty cool to meet and what would you like to know about them? This is also an intro into their project.
  • The students will divide into teams of 2. One student will be the interviewer and the other the explorer. They will come up with a set of questions and answers. I will then film their final performance so they can practice speaking and also a fun memory.
  • I will have a handout explaining the importance of the explorers to choose from. It will include explorers significance. The group will hand in preference.
