In our classroom we have a timeline that shows us important dates for famous explorers throughout history like Marco Polo. This week every student had to write a fact from the explorer that they had studied. I was studying Ferdinand Magellan and I put 1519 when he set sail. Some explorers that we studied about were Vasco Nunez de Balboa, Ponce De Leon, and Henry Hudson. We continue to add to this timeline as we study further important dates within our American history. For example, we added 1620 for when the Pilgrims first landed on Plymouth.
