              Explorations are inquiry-based, interactive modules designed to give students the opportunity to do history: to conduct research, analyze primary sources, and draw their own conclusions.

              Each Exploration will have a separate tab containing specific teacher materials.

              Please Note: eXplorations are still under development and being tested. Some units are more complete than others. Eventually all will have a teacher resource section.
