Games that you can play:
Match the Explorer to his ship or map (use control card with both ship and a traveler as a reference)
Build an origami boat with the enclosed directions (I included the simplest; there are plenty more types of boats. This site seems to have good interactive instructions: http://www.origami-kids.com/paperairplanes-1-paperboat.php)
Traverse each Famous Explorer’s journey on the map: put your Explorer into an origami boat and “sail” across the map over the places he traveled to.

--------- Roald Amundsen
--------- Thor Heyerdahl
--------- Hedin, Sven Anders
(rocket ship) Yuriy Gagarin
Prepare Your Materials:
Cut each explorer, each ship and each description (it’s your choice weather to cut the control card)
There are more travellers in the “Explorers” PDF file. (I wish I found them earlier – it would have saved me a great deal of work)
Glue together (or laminate) the traveler and his description back to back
Laminate the ships with maps
Create bases for your travelers: you can use origami ships, or make a 12 little balls out of playdough, flatten one side and insert travelers into these balls
Print and laminate the mapsNOTE: you can either print a small 8x10 map or you can print 4 pieces of a large map and scotch tape them together to make one large traveling surface.
NOTE 2: Herodotus' pathway: I made a few navy dots around places he was describing, but it is hard to pinpoint how much he actually travelled, and how much information he recorded from stories by other travelers.
