Transcript of Christopher Columbus by Emily Slattery
His father was a wool merchant and weaver.
As a child it is believed that Christopher had lessons from monks.
I chose Christopher Columbus because....
Columbus went to sea at the age of 13.
He and his brother Bartholomew made and sold maps.
Columbus called his discoveries the 'New World' as the lands they discovered were new to Europeans.
He called Native Americans 'Indians' as he thought he had landed in 'the Indies' (Asia).
Columbus and his sailors were very brave and never gave up on their dream, even when people laughed at them.
Many Europeans, when they got to America, treated the Native Americans very badly, took their land and made them become slaves.
What is Christopher Columbus famous for?
