Transcript of The Explorations of Vasco Da Gama and Ferdinand Magellan

Why were they exploring, and where did they explore to?
Da Gama and Magellan
Vasco Da Gama
He was exploring to find a new, and shorter
route to India for trade goods like spices.
Many people told him the journey would be
impossible, because at that time they
thought that the Indian Ocean was
not connected to the other oceans.
Vasco Da Gama
On his second trip to India, he brought 20 armed
ships with him to combat any trouble he may find
along the way. His third trip to India was his
last as he eventually died from a disease as he
was settling down to live there.
Vasco Da Gama
Ferdinand Magellan
Magellan was from Portugal but he
was sailing for Spain, and he
proposed to sail around the
entire world to find a
new route to get some
better spices.
Ferdinand Magellan
He took 4 ships and about 270
people on this voyage around
the world. Only one ship
returned, and only 18 people survived the
journey. Magellan was not one
of the survivors.
Ferdinand Magellan
Sailed from Portugal in 1497, sailed
around Africa, and made it to India
in 1498. He returned to
Portugal by 1499.
He is the first man to sail around the Earth, and he did so from 1519-1522. He wanted to find a way around the world. He also named the Pacific Ocean, which means calm and peaceful.
