  • Topic 3

    The explorers recorded all of the details of their trip by writing in their journals everyday. They wrote about the weather, described the people and places they visited, drew and described the plants and animals of the different parts of the land. They visited the ancient forest, the riverbanks, the seashore, the grasslands, the mountains, the dry lands that are practically desert  and the land where the rainforest had been chopped down and burned. The explorers knew that it was wrong to waste all those trees because trees give off oxygen and oxygen is what we breathe.

    Being true scientists, the explorers recorded in their journals the name of each city, town and village that they passed through. Then they marked their route on their expedition maps.

    Use the Map worksheet to mark your route in red or create your own map. (Ask the Art teacher how to use a grid to enlarge the map or learn how to enlarge on the printer.)
