Now that you have chosen your explorer, it's time to begin your research.

Using the Researching My Explorer sheet, find information that will help you answer each of the 4 questions you'll be researching:

     - Describe the explorer's early life.
     - Why did he begin exploring and what was he looking for?
     - Where did he explore? What route did he take?
     - What happened as a result of his explorations?

Now, scroll down to find your explorer and use the internet links to find information.
*Make sure you have enough information on your explorer. If you feel you don't have enough...choose a different explorer!*
There are even some videos below that will provide you with some facts as well.
