You may use your textbook, online sources, and library books. You will need to include biographical information including what nationality they were, where they explored, what discoveries they made, what they searched for, and any other significant historical information. We will have a sign up sheet for each classroom so that no more than two people will have the same person. Everyone will work individually on this assignment.
You will present your slideshow to the class.
