Congratulations! You have just been hired to create a video that documents the life of a famous explorer. Here's an example of what we'll be looking for in your video:

Before you can create your video, you'll need to write a script. This will be exactly what you will be saying in your video (the narration). And before you can write a script, you need to know as much as you possibly can about the explorer you are researching.

In class today, we created a Google Doc for our notes and our script. The document can be found by going to Google Drive and double-clicking on the doc titled [student #] Explorer Video. If you weren't in class today, you will need to create a new document and give it the title, [student #] Explorer Video.

Here is the list of questions we came up with during class to include in our videos:

  • What country were they from? Did they sail for? Who sent them?

  • Interesting Facts - Drake related to Sir Walter Raleigh
  • Did they make it back home?
  • Did they stay with Native Americans?
  • How many miles and how long did they travel?
