Explore an Explorer! Since the beginning of time people have explored. Explorers wanted to know more about the land around them. Thousands of years ago, the Native Americans came from Asia across the land bridge to a new world. They spent centuries exploring this new land and building new civilizations and empires. In the late 1400s, Europeans "discovered" this "New World" by accident while they were trying to find a shorter route to the Indies. Thanks to those great explorers we have lots of information on maps today! There were many different explorers that came from many different lands. No one went exploring just to keep busy. There were many different reasons why those brave explorers took off into the unknown. You and your partner will get the chance to read about several explorers, then you will choose one that you and your partner are interested in learning more about. It will be your job to find out why your explorer set sail, where they went, and what they found along the way. You will research one explorer and do a character representation on your explorer to teach the rest of the class what you have learned. You may also complete a power point for extra points.

The European Voyages of Exploration
Latin America
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.

    Global History Movement
    Exploration Background
    The resurgence of trade following the Middle Ages in Europe resulted in a demand for goods from Asia. Trade routes were established across the Mediterranean and through the Middle East to handle this need. But, when the expansion of the Ottoman Empire caused disruption along these routes, Europeans were forced to seek alternative ways of importing these goods. This led to the exploration of water routes to Asia, and eventually the discovery of the Americas by the Europeans. Reconquista

    Explorer de Soto Discovered a Continent Instead of Riches
    By Gerry J. Gilmore

    American Forces Press Service
    Fate had other plans. De Soto found no New World wealth and his fame has dimmed with the passage of time. Ill and dispirited, he died in the wilderness and was secretly laid to rest within the waters of the great tributary he discovered.
    Spanish explorers in Florida a decade before de Soto were told by the inhabitants that cities of immense wealth lay just beyond the horizon, probably in the hopes of ridding themselves of the strange interlopers. The natives de Soto met in his travels offered him fish, furs and freshwater pearls, but no silver, gold and jewels. But, they also told him of lands of wealth.
    Besides riches, the great powers of the 16th century also believed the New World offered an ocean shortcut to the lucrative trade markets in India and China — the legendary "Northwest Passage." De Soto would come to realize to his chagrin that no such route existed.
    While historians agree de Soto found "Old Muddy," uncertainty exists regarding the exact path of his exploration some 230 years before the birth of the United States.

    History In 1492 Christopher Columbus with a permission and support from the Spanish Crown tried to reach the coasts of India by crossing the Atlantic Ocean. He never reached India, however, he discovered an Amazing New World with multiple natural riches and numerous native inhabitants. Columbus' joy was indescribable when he saw the land after traveling for many weeks. His crew had almost given up the hope of finding mysterious land and wanted to sail back to Spain. This was one of the most important discoveries in the human history. When Columbus returned to Spain and told the officials about all the prosperity of the New World, Spain and Portugal started arguing about who is going to control which territories in South and North America. Pope Alexander VI finally resolved the dispute in 1493. He gave to Portugal a piece of land from present South America, which now is an independent state named Brazil and Spain got other neighboring regions. Post-Columbian Explorers

    In the end of the 17th century Spain and Portugal dominated all South America except Guiana, which was controlled by Great Britain, France, and The Netherlands. Great Britain, France and The Netherlands were exhausted by wars that took place on the European continent. Therefore, they could not pay a lot of attention to their colonies anymore. However, Europeans still heavily dominated and controlled South American trade and exploited the continent's natural resources. During the 18th century, many colonies started organizing various strikes and protests to resist European exploitation and domination. The unrest was especially powerful in Paraguay from 1721 to 1735, in Peru from 1780 to 1782, and in New Granada in 1781.

      Pizarro, Francisco O E O p E O Pronunciation Key Pizarro, Francisco c. 1476 , Spanish conquistador, conqueror of Peru. Born in Trujillo, he was an illegitimate son of a Spanish gentleman and as a child was an illiterate swineherd. Pizzaro accompanied Ojeda to Colombia in 1510 and was with Balboa when he discovered the Pacific. Hearing of the fabled wealth of the Incas, he formed (1524) a partnership with Diego de Almagro Atahualpa , awaited him. Professing friendship, he enticed Atahualpa into the power of the Spanish, seized him, exacted a stupendous ransom, and then treacherously had him executed. The conquest of Peru was virtually completed by the capture of Cuzco , which was later defended against Inca forces led by Manco Capac. Pizarro set about consolidating his conquest by founding new settlements, notably the present capital of Peru, Lima, and allotting land and Native Americans in encomienda to his followers.

    Balboa led an expedition across Panama looking for gold, but discovered the Pacific Ocean instead. It took 24 days for his group of 190 Spaniards and 1000 natives to cross the 45 miles of jungle. On September 29, 1513 they reached the Pacific Ocean and claimed all the land that touched the Pacific Ocean for Spain. Back to Chart Hernando Cortez
    Cortez was a young Spaniard who went to Cuba to find his fortune. He heard stories of gold in Mexico and South America. In 1519 Cortez left Cuba to find this gold. With 300 Aztecs to every one of Cortez's men the Spanish fought. After 3 battles the Indians gave up. They could not complete against the guns and horses. The Spaniards also wore metal armor. More than this the Indians were afraid of the "god-like" warriors. On November 8, 1519 Cortez reached Mexico City and was received by Montezuma, the Aztec emperor. Cortez captured Montezuma and began to rule the empire through him. The Spaniards made the Aztecs work in the mines looking for gold and silver. This gold and silver was shipped back to Spain. Back to Chart Francisco Coronado
    Coronado commanded an expedition which left from western Mexico in 1540. He was searching for the Seven Golden Cities of Cibola. Coronado rode through northern Mexico and into what is now Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Coronado did not find any golden cities, but discovered the Pueblo Indians. Coronado was upset at not finding the cities of gold. He sent his men off in different directions with orders to find them. His men found the Grand Canyon instead. Coronado would not give up. He marched his army east. There he found the buffalo and grassy plains, but no cities of gold. Coronado claimed all the land over which he and his men had traveled in the name of Spain.

    37. Francisco Pizarro
    francisco pizarro. The main reason pizarro was sent to explore was for conquest.Spain already had lots of land in the new world but they wanted more.
    Francisco Pizarro Biographical Facts: Pizarro was born in Trujillo, Spain in 1478. Nobody knows the exact date. His parents never married and he was brought up by his mother's parents. His father was the Royal Infantry Captain of Spain, so he was an important guy. His mother was just a regular person. During his childhood he never went to school and thus never learned to read. So he couldn't do a chore or small job that needed education. He herded pigs. After about 15 years of pig herding in 1502 he moved to the West Indies or what is now Haiti. There he lived with his father's brother. And it is said that maybe his father's brother helped Pizarro on his expeditions. Major Achievements:
    Pizarro's first expedition was in 1509 and he was the first mate. The captain was Balboa, another famous explorer. The expeditions purpose was to explore the land that is now Panama. The crew founded Panama City and Pizarro was an important townsperson there. Then in 1527 he made his first expedition on his own to find a rumored civilization called the Incas. Pizarro's first mate was a good friend, his name was Diego de Almagro. They sailed down the coast of western South America. There they went inland a little ways and found evidence of the Incas and gold. Then he returned to Panama with the news. The whole expedition took one year. Then when he was back in Panama he made plans to sail back to Spain and tell the King and Queen the news and get more men and provisions for crops and other foods that were not abundant in Panama. With this news, the King appointed him the governor of Peru, the name of this land that he had found. Then he sailed back to Panama, where he made plans for a long expedition and war on the Incas that would make him the ruler of Peru.

The settlement, on what is now the nation's southeast coast, survived for only about six months. Ayllon was born in Toledo, Spain. In 1504, he arrived in the Americas and served as a judge for the Spanish government on the island of Hispaniola. Ayllon became wealthy, in part by trading in Indian slaves. He also sponsored voyages to the coast of what may have been present-day South Carolina or Georgia. The first of these voyages, made in 1521, was led by Spanish explorer Francisco Gordillo. Ayllon heard reports that the land Gordillo saw, called Chicora by the Indians, was rich in natural resources and resembled southern Spain.

The Spanish conquistadors were one group of explorers who sailed for Spain. They explored the Americas during the first half of the 1500's. It was during this time that the Spanish dominated the settlement of the Americas. Task Imagine you are a conquistador on a ship sailing to the New World during the 16th century.
