by Belinda Mooney
October 2, 2000 

So far in our Let's Study Explorer Unit we have gathered the basics and started our notebooks. We started out by studying Marco Polo. Now we continue with :

Marco Polo Pt 3

Marco learned about many things he had never seen or heard of before while on these travels. He was amazed at the "black stones" the Chinese burnt for fuel. Europe had never heard of coal. Europe also did not have paper money at this time but the Chinese did. And while European monks and scribes were laboriously handwriting books the Chinese were printing theirs!

Add Cathay (China) to your map.Marco learned about many things he had never seen or heard of before while on these travels. He was amazed at the "black stones" the Chinese burnt for fuel.
