Everything you wanted to know about explorers but with misinformation.

All About Explorers is an "educational" website that supposedly contains histories of various explorers throughout the years. However, it was actually designed to teach students about how some websites that look reliable can be full of misleading or false information.

Why It's Rotten (Intentionally)

NOTE: As mentioned above, this website is bad on purpose in order to teach students about finding reliable sources.

  1. The website is full of obvious lies.
    • They said that Christopher Columbus was born in Australia even though everyone knows he was born in Italy.
  2. There's warnings through the site saying illegal strings.
  3. The dates are all wrong.
  4. They use a nice looking site to trick people into using the site.
  5. It can ruin a kid's test grade.
