Transcript of Magellan
magellan the end.
The great explorer
In those days, there was no such thing as radio or GPS devices. There were no lights except candles and lanterns. And the ships had no source of power except for wind and rowing. In the dark, the ships communicated with each other by torchlight. If ships were in trouble, sailors fired a cannon. None of the ships had accurate maps or clocks. And they had no way to tell what weather was coming. So the sailors were unable to prepare for the fierce storms that struck the ships. With no refrigeration, food could spoil quickly. Much of their food was preserved with salt. They ate a lot of pork, sardines, dried fish, and hard biscuits.
1)A penguin was named after Magellan!

3)There is a monument of Ferdinand Magellan
in Punta Arenas in Chile.
