Expedition: Learn! puts the power of trusted, validated Britannica content at your fingertips with ready-to-use lessons on key concepts in science and social sciences.

How Expedition: Learn! Works for Students

Each digital lesson offers a 4-stage guided journey towards discovery and understanding.

1. Spark interest

Each lesson begins with a video that introduces the topic. Key terms are defined and displayed throughout the lesson, and students respond to questions and draw conclusions from the video.


2. Build understanding

A fact-checked Britannica article, available at four different reading levels, helps students explore the topic in depth. Auto-scored assessments follow each article to check for comprehension, vocabulary knowledge, and understanding.


3. Connect learning

A series of questions helps students connect the information presented in this lesson to their own learning, encouraging them to draw on their own experiences in their responses.


4. Explore more

Students have the opportunity to dive deeper into the topics using additional Britannica resources, ideal for inquiry-based learning and research projects.
