This packet is divided into four sections (Navigation, To the Ends of the Poles, Commodore Perry and Japan, and Undersea Exploration)and contains activities that develop skills in writing, map reading, researching, critical thinking, and creative expression, while providing a historical look at important naval accomplishments.
