Leif Ericson's first Voyage was to Iceland from Greenland. He was sent to Iceland from his dad to give King Olaf a present. Leif Ericson was a viking who had come to Canada by accindent but, may possibly be the First Explorer to set foot on North America.

of great explores. He, his' mother and father sailed to the
east to find new land. He found North American while
sailing by himself. He knew that it would be impossible,
but never gave up. He behaved well and gave first nation
people gifts. He left the first nation people as they were
and didn't interrupt their ways of life.
Negative effects of Leif Ericson in North America! Erik the red was the only murderer in the long list of his great ancestors before him.But Erik thought the country (Canada) was useless so, he sailed away forever. He sailed away because when he came he thought he'd find gold but, there wasn't enough so, he left in search for more. Leif Ericson didn't find "Bjarni's ship" after all he has been through searching for it. Even though he kept his hopes up it didn't help him find it.
Conclusion! Leif Ericson was a Norweigian Viking and an excellent explorer. He had discovered North America and was nice to the First Nations. He landed here in Helluland (now known as Labrador) and explored areas of Vinland (Also known as Newfoundland). He came here in the year 1000 CE so, he was one of the first explorer to come to our land: North America! By: Shelly
