Extractions: The European Voyages of Exploration The earliest inhabitants of America were hunters who migrated from the Asian mainland across the Bering Straits land bridge between 40,000 and 25,000 B.C.E. They adapted quickly to their environment. Their population in Central America and in the high valleys of the Andes alone had grown to approximately 45 million by 1492, the year Christopher Columbus arrived in America. In 1500, over 350 major tribal groups, 15 distinct cultural centres and more than 160 linguistic stocks existed in Latin America, a variety so great as to invite comparison with all of Eurasia or all of Africa. Map of New Spain 1540 The Europeans incorrectly categorised all these groups under the title of "Indian." "Indian" was of course a misnomer since it originated in a geographical misconception on the part of the Christopher Columbus who imagined himself near the East Indies. Having only one name applied to the diverse indigenous populations also presented a unity between these groups that did not actually exist. Even after contact with the European invaders, each group sought out the most advantageous situation for itself alone. This lack of unity was a key element to Spanish expansion as will be seen in the accounts of the conquests of the Aztec and Inca Empires. Any commonality among the diverse indigenous groups came from their shared state of relative isolation from the rest of humanity. In the Old World, people, disease strains and technologies had been continually passed back and forth over the entire great landmass of Europe-Asia-Africa for centuries. New World peoples had no such contact and this resulted in devastating population losses due to a lack of resistance to the incoming Old World diseases like smallpox. Another way in which these groups were similar is that none had iron and steel. The Europeans knew how to manufacture and use steel weapons and this knowledge gave them the ultimate military superiority critical to their conquest of the New World.

Easier - There have always been explorers. Explorers are people who travel to or investigate unknown places. In traveling, they make or follow a route, path, or trail. Prehistoric men and women who ventured out across the continents were among the first explorers. Harder - Explorers are usually thought of as people who purposely visit and study an unknown geographic area. The golden age of exploration began in the fifteenth century as sailors from Europe ventured out and explored the world, locating routes across its oceans and continents and defining the earth's physical shape, size, and positions. Today however, explorers are persons who systematically search, examine, and investigate for the purpose of discovering unknowns in all aspects of our universe; making new discoveries and expanding frontiers in science, medicine, technology, and our environment.

Extractions: Print entire article Introduction 'Everything that has happened since the marvellous discovery of the Americas has been so extraordinary that the whole story remains quite incredible to anyone who has not experienced it at first hand. Indeed it seems to overshadow all the deeds of famous people of the past, no matter how heroic, and to silence all talk of other wonders of the world.' - Bartolome de las Casas It is amazing to think that when Bartolome de las Casas wrote those words in 1542, barely 20 years had passed since the discovery and conquest of the Aztec world in Mexico. It was only three years since the defeat of the Great Revolt of the Incas in the High Andes of Peru. At that moment, in fact, Manco Inca still controlled an independent Inca state in the jungles of Vilcabamba. During the same years in which Cortes overthrew the Aztecs, Magellan circumnavigated the globe. '...has history, and our ways of seeing the world, ever moved so fast as it did in the 16th century?'

Extractions: Unit 9: Exploration / The Americas Columbus in the New World The voyages of Christopher Columbus initiated the European exploration of the Americas. The following selections come from a letter written by Columbus upon his return from the New World. After landing in Lisbon in March 1493, Columbus sent a letter describing his discoveries to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella. In the letter, Columbus describes the geography and people of the islands that he believed were in the "Indian Sea." The letter was first published in Barcelona and immediately went into multiple editions, becoming one of Europe's earliest "bestsellers." Eleven editions were published in 1493 alone. Columbus Discovers the New World Columbus's letter announcing his findings in the New World was printed along with images that illustrated his discoveries. This print depicts the inhabitants of the New World as Columbus saw them. Cortes Describes Aztec Sacrifices, 1521 Hernan Cortes (1485-1546) and his troops managed in a short time to invade Mexico and topple the Aztec civilization there, culminating in the 1523 destruction of the capital of Tenochtitlan. Cortes arrived on the mainland of Mexico as a rebel against both the governor of Cuba and the king of Spain, but he won back royal support after his conquests. In this selection taken from a letter to the Spanish king, Cortes described Aztec human sacrifices and suggested that he conquer the people in the name of Christianity. Fusing description, flattery, and a belief in the power of European civilization, this letter represents an ideal window into the mind of the Spanish conquistador.

Extractions: Introduction Beginning with the Vikings in the 8th century, the Americas have been explored by many people. During the 1500's and 1600's European countries began exploring across the Atlantic Ocean . Christopher Columbus was one of the first explorers to attempt this great feat. His accomplishments sparked the interest of exploration in many other countries. Explorers have had various reasons for risking their lives when setting out across the world. Marco Polo was searching for new trade routes, David Livingston traveled across Africa as a missionary, while others were motivated by the need to chart and map new areas. In this webquest, you will find out what drove the exploration for these significant explorers and how did the motives for explorations differ from country to country? The Task You will work in your assigned group to search the Internet and use print materials to identify what drove the exploration of your explorers. During your search you will be looking for certain aspects of his exploration. Once you have obtained these aspects, you will be able to complete the following:
Extractions: Lesson Plan on the Effects of the Spanish Conquest Teacher: Angela DiMaio Subject: Social Studies Grade Level: 5th Date: June 12, 2000 Sunshine Strand: People, Places, and Environments. [Geography] Sunshine Standard: The student understands the interactions of people and the physical environment. I. Content: I want my students to understand that the effect the Spanish Conquistadors had on the New World and its inhabitants was both a blessing and a curse. II. Prerequisites: The students should have a general knowledge about the inhabitants of the New World in terms of who they were and how they lived. III. Instructional Objective: When requested, the student will describe how the Conquistadors affected the lives of the Native Americans. Included in the description must be reference to at least two places where they landed, the names of three Native people conquered, and at least three changes that occurred with each people as a result. IV Instructional Procedures: Lesson-initiating activity: The lesson begins with the teacher introducing background information on the Spanish Conquistadors. The Conquistadors came to the New World looking for Gold, God, and Glory. They wanted to conquer and expand their settlements in the New World and by doing so, they eradicated established civilizations. However, the Spanish Conquistadors did bring Christianity to the New World as well as European culture.
Extractions: Bristol Mariners seem to have visited Canada in the 1480s, and Christopher Columbus may have learned of, and been inspired by, their voyages. In 1492, William Ayers, an Irishman undoubtedly familiar with English activities, sailed with Columbus on the Santa Maria. In 1497 and 1498 John Cabot, like Columbus a Genoese expatriate, explored eastern Canada under the English flag. By 1502 Englishmen were trading in Newfoundland and parts south, and organizing syndicates, some involving Azorean Portuguese, to exploit the fisheries there. England did not miss the entire European rediscovery of the Western Hemisphere, but did retire early. While England slept, Spain became dominant in the New World and on the high seas. In 1493, during his second voyage, Columbus founded Isabela, the first permanent Spanish settlement in the New World, on Hispaniola. After finding gold in recoverable quantities nearby, the Spanish quickly overran the island and spread to Puerto Rico in 1508, to Jamaica in 1509, and to Cuba in 1511. The natives fared badly. Many died in one-sided armed conflict with soldiers and settlers, or in forced servitude in mines and on plantations. Others died of diseases to which they had no immunity. By mid-century, the native Ciboney of Hispaniola and western Cuba were extinct, and other tribes, including the Arawak of Puerto Rico, were nearly so. Beginning in 1508, Spanish settlements sprang up on the mainland of Central and South America. In 1519, just six years after Balboa had crossed the Isthmus of Panama and claimed the entire Pacific Ocean for Spain, Pedro Arias de Avila, Balboa's father-in-law and executioner, founded the city of Panama on the Pacific coast. The same year, Hernan Cortes led a small force from Cuba to the Gulf coast of Mexico, founded Veracruz , and set about destroying the Aztec empire. Most of Mexico fell within two years. Subsequent conquistadors followed the example set by Cortes. By 1532, Francisco Pizarro, had effected the early stages of his conquest of the Inca empire of Peru. By 1550 Spain had dominion over the West Indies and Central America and its large surviving native population.
