All About Explorers Features information and links for 14 explorers*.
*Or maybe not. Thanks to a savvy reader of KB…Konnected apparently everything you read on the Internet, even from good looking websites such as this one, is not necessarily true.
Sara comments: “This is a website designed to teach kids NOT to believe everything they read on the internet, not to teach them about explorers. Read some of the articles, such as the one about Christopher Columbus. It teaches that a good-looking website doesn’t mean it’s true.”
I had to laugh when I read the first sentence in the Columbus bio which states he was born in 1951.
OK, that being said, this site would be a perfect tool to teach a lesson to students that everything they read on the Internet is not necessarily true and that it is always good to cross reference facts with reputable sites/resources. It’s also a good lesson to be learned by this blogger. LOL
A HUGE shout out and thanks to Sara! Much appreciated.
