You have now read up on seven important explorers and their discoveries. Of course there are many more, but, as you might have figured out by now, seven is ”the magical number” of this site, so there could be ”no more”.

Now – talk in groups.

  • Which of these seven discoveries do you find to be the most important, and why?
  • Which one would you have wanted to be on, and why?
  • What discoveries are left to be made? Come up with latest two, and you may google. Which one do you find most interesting, and why?
  • Is it important to keep on discovering? Should there be a cost limit? If you were a politician – would you spend the money on discovering, or on helping poor?

Be ready to share your thoughts!
