First of all, I am going to tell you about the five great explorers of America. Ponce de Leon, Amerigo Vespucci, Christopher Columbus, Ferdinand Magellan, and Vasco da Gama.
First explorer, Christopher Columbus, a person that discovered America, inspired people to go discover some parts of America. He died with chains in his coffin.
Second explorer, Ponce de Leon, went to Florida and went searching for the fountain of youth. He searched all over that he did not find it. So he left without finding the fountain.
Third explorer, Amerigo Vespucci, looked for signs of China and India, but he said that it was another island. He was in South America when he found the signs it was not China.
Fourth explorer, Vasco da Gama, sailed through the cape of storms which is called The cape of Good Hope. He collected some of the jewels, and spices.
Last explorer, Ferdinand Magellan to find a hole after that he found a hole he called it the strate of Magellan. He also named the biggest ocean the pacific ocean because it is peaceful. He died in the Philippines with a poison arrow.
My Conclusion is that every explorer did something that changed the world. Those were the explorers that went to America and explored through there and wanted to go to India and China to get some riches.
