Additional Information

Reflection
  • I think Marquette was a risk-taker because he was
    going to explore a place what had never been
    explored and he was a brave man.
  • He was a person who had an open-mind because he
    listened to other people and he believed in
    himself.
  • I think he was a person who liked finding things
    that had not been found.
