The Sun Never Sets

We completed a map of the British Empire today.  If you weren't here, make sure you get a copy when you return.

You can probably figure out most of it by looking at this map:

The map is anachronistic.  England didn't control this land all at once.  But it does show how far-reaching its influence was.

If you want the extra credit for reading and discussing today's post - find an adult and discuss why England would have wanted to have that much land.  (Think back to the "why explorers explored" paper.)  After you're done reading and discussing, write the following quote on a scrap piece of paper and have the adult you discussed the blog with sign the paper.  "The sun never sets on the British Empire."
