Transcript of christopher columbus
Christopher Columbus is known for being the first European to go to find the Americas, the Bahamas, Haiti, Porto Rico, Jamaica, Cuba, and Hispaniola. He also mapped these places. When he got back to Spain on his first voyage he brought 6 natives, birds (parrots), and new cultures. There were also things that he was supposed to find that he did not find. For example he was supposed to find spices and gold. Christopher Columbus did find a little bit of gold but he did not find any spices. On other trips he did find gold and brought it back for the king and queen of Spain.
It is not really known but moste people believe that he was inspired by the famous Marco Polo and his book. What Where The Consequences? The negative consequences of his voyage were that a few people died and he brought very deadly European diseases to the new world. One of the most tragic diseases was Small Pox which killed thousands of natives. The positive consequences was that he inspired more people to start exploring. For example he inspired Ferdinand Magellan to start exploring. Thank you for watching Resources. Web sites.
