Drake’s West Indian Voyage 1588-1589
Before leading students through the exploration process, teachers should make themselves familiar with the background of this series of maps by reading Francis Drake’s Voyage in Early Maps. Each of the maps will print in 9 sections. Before class, collate the pieces of the location maps (St. Augustine, Santiago, Cartagena, and Santo Domingo) into a single stack, alternating pieces from each map (A, B, C, D). When distributed, students adjacent to each other will have pieces from different maps.
