How He Got In To It

Do you think it would be fun sailing around the world? Well guess who did or almost made it and did not? Christopher Columbus! He was the one that believed that the earth was round so he decided to prove his point and sail around the world. First he got his crew and they had to buy all the things that will help them survive like water,food,and weapons to protect them from any harm. Then they needed someone to support them and pay for the things that they need like the big things like boats. That was Queen Isabella the 1st and King Ferdinand which they believed that they could explore and make things possible so they decided to help them. So then right away they got to it and were ready to explore the world on a boat!

How Do You Think That They Would React?

Have you ever wondered about the indians that Christopher Columbus saw. Or what the indians were thinking? Well I think with all there exploring it was probably hard for the indians seeing new people and did not understand them. Well it was and was not easy for the indians and them not understanding. But also Christopher Columbus was not the nicest man alive. Let me tell you that he did not make a lot of good choices. Like when the indians did not agree with him he was mad and sometimes he would even make them slaves! But also some times the indians overpower Columbus and became a slave for them and it was not expected. So there were a lot of hardships for the indians meeting new people but also Columbus with all that he risked for him and his crew that they could prove that the world was not flat at all.

Conclusion

Although Columbus did not make it all around the world he still made history by proving his point with all that he could. Over all the things that he loved one of the most important thing was exploring and that was big for him.


Fun Facts

Columbus died on the way but the crew finished it for him. Also most say that Columbus did not really reach america and because they think the indians were there first. Last but not least Columbus did not mean to find america he meant to travel the whole world but our land got in the way and he decided to explore the land.
