Purpose:
We will be using our research skills to find information about our assigned explorers. Together, we will create a virtual social network that these brave people in history can be part of. This is our very own historical social network called Historybook. Your history page will contain biographical information and images about your explorer. Also, you will be able to use special tools and resources if you would like to make your page even more exciting.
