Chous and Da Gama

Today we worked on our map skills and investigated the routes of Da Gama and Dias. These explorers opened the sea route to Asia and helped start the Age of Exploration. We took a close look at a caravel (a light sailing ship) which also helped exploration by being able to sail into the wind (tack). We took a few notes as well, and chorus students will need to update their vocabulary section in their notebooks.
