While-Reading (10-15 minutes) • To provide students with a chance to practice scanning for specific information

T divides the class into groups of 3 students and assign a part of the text to each in a group. Students are given time to fill their chart with the appropriate details. After they finish, they help each other fill the test of the chart. Then, Ss are given time to scan the other texts to find answers to the questions in the ex. 2C.

Post-Reading (8-10 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

Ss are asked to respond to the text by answering the following question: which explorer achieved most? Ss exchange their answers.

Vocabulary (5-10 minutes) • to practice the use of phrasal verbs
