Abstract:

Let your students' imaginations soar as they travel around the world with these legendary explorers. Exploring during the Age of Exploration was fraught with violence and danger as well as thrilling discoveries and beautiful lands. Kids will be introduced to the complex issues of land ownership and political intrigue, as well as the interconnections between the history of a people and the history of the land that they called their own.

Born to a noble family in Spain, this explorer crisscrossed the South-western United States in his lifelong quest for the seven cities of gold. Although he never found the cities, Coronado saw the prairies and deserts of the Southwest fifty years before they would be settled by Spaniards, and was the first European to see the Grand Canyon.
