Can you think of 3 DANGERS that you might endure if you decide to go on this voyage?

DANGER!DANGER # 1: dangers endured crossing the Atlantic on boat (death, disease, ect.)

DANGER #2: Lack of food, shelter, etc

DANGER #3: Enemies? Who will they encounter once they get there

WOULD YOU STAY OR WOULD YOU GO?1. Many would take chance at religious freedom 2. freedom of persecution from government or better opportunities might entice them to go even though there are dangers

WAS COLUMBUS THE FIRST TO FIND THE NEW WORLD?

WHO WERE THE FIRST EUROPEANS TO MAKE CONTACT WITH NORTH AMERICA?

THE VIKINGS

WHO WERE THE VIKINGS?PEOPLE THAT CAME FROM: Scandinavia, Denmark, Norway, SwedenUsed ships called longships the ship actually curved at both ends.

Founded Iceland and Greenland

WHO WAS THERE?LIEF ERIKSON (SON OF ERIK THE RED)In 1000, he was sailing west from Norway to Greenland when a strong wind storm blew his ship off course and carried his ship all the way to the North American Coast

A couple hundred years later in PORTUGAL in the 1400sHenry the NavigatorHe ended up building an observatory and founded a school of navigation to teach better methods of sailing. He also PAID for expeditions to explore the west coast of Africa.

One example of the innovations was a very special ship called the caravel it became the work-horse of many European sailors.

WHY WOULD EUROPEANS WANT TO EXPLORE UNCHARTERED TERRITORY?1. ASIAN SPICES.2. They wanted to be able to by spices and other goods directly and bypass the merchants3. Christians in Europe wanted to convert more people to their faith4. Many Europeans had become interested in Asian culture.5.FIND NEW TRADE ROUTES

Portuguese navigator Bartolommeo Dias founded Cape of Good Hope in 1488

Another Portuguese explorer named Vasco de Gama also made many explorations!

HOW CAN I RELATE THIS TO YOU?WELLWHY WOULD YOU WANT TO MOVE OUT?NO CURFEWNO BEDTIMEYOU MAKE THE RULESBUY THE KIND OF FOOD YOU WANT5. WATCH WHATEVER T.V. SHOWS YOU WANT

CAUSES OF THE DISCOVERY OF A SEA ROUTE TO ASIA

1. Financial backing from Prince Henry the Navigator2. Technology (caravel and mariners astrolabe)

3. Trade with Asia and financial gain4. Converting people to Christianity5. Curiosity

EFFECTS OF THE DISCOVERY OF A SEA ROUTE TO ASIA

1. Discovery of a sea route to Asia2. Face-to-face contact with traders in distant lands3. Awareness of different cultures and ways of life

I can list some major RESULTS of Portugals explorations. #1 Start of the Atlantic Slave Trade#2 Sailors negotiated for gold, ivory and slaves

#3 Slave trade devastated African communities

#4 Led to increase warfare among kingdoms and broke up many families

#5 Brought much wealth to Portugal

IF YOU HAD TO GUESSWHAT EFFECT DO YOU THINK EUROPEAN EXPLORATION WILL HAVE ON AFRICANS AND NATIVE AMERICANS?

THE BIG IDEA1. VIKINGS FOUNDED NORTH AMERICA2. COLUMBUS DID NOT DISCOVER NORTH AMERICA FIRST!3.EXPLORATION BROUGHT ABOUT MANY GOOD AND BAD THINGS!4.
