Reasons for Exploration

We are using "New World Explorers" by Homeschool in the Woods and our first lesson has been about WHY explorers wanted to explore. Part of the curriculum is to make a lapbook and our first item is a little booklet called "Reasons for Exploration." We had a lot of fun gluing things in our booklet to represent each of the 5 "Reasons."

Last week, we made spice cookies. Some explorers were trying to find a safer sea route to get to the spices they desired because the Silk Route had become too dangerous. Alexandra loved the cookies and I thought they were horrible. :-) But, we both had fun making them! What a fun start to our study!
