Readers Theatre for Global ExplorersLibraries Unlimited, 2011
Throughout history, powerful kings and queens have sent their emissaries on quests for land and wealth to expand their empires. But what about those emissaries? A man who ventures to sail into uncharted seas, knowing he may never return. A woman who disguises herself and walks into forbidden lands. What gave them the courage and the strength to face many daunting challenges? How did they feel during the worst and best times in their adventures?
Social studies should never be boring, especially when it comes to recounting the adventures of the world's greatest explorers. Readers Theatre for Global Explorers gives social studies teachers and school librarians a tool to introduce students to the determined men and women who ventured into unknown territory. This collection of short scripts for 4th to 8th grade students teaches about explorers, their native cultures, and the lands they found. Just as importantly, they make learning fun.

This book will help you find out what praise really is and get to know the wonderful, amazing, faithful God who deserves our praise every day.
