 An extensive list of Explorers with links to short biographies on each.

Extensive list of explorers with information on each.  What I love about this site is at the bottom of most of the articles is a link that says "Click here for other places to learn about this explorer" which will take you to MORE great web resources for your explorer.  This was co-created by an elementary Teacher Librarian and is very well-done!!!
