Distances Traveled

  1. Have a list of voyages from Age of Exploration (Cabot, Columbus, Vespucci) prepared for this center. You will want to provide actual maps tracing the voyages.
  2. Have your students find the distances for each voyage.
  3. They should keep track of these in a chart format and place them in order from shortest to longest.
