His Childhood
When he was a child his father pushed him into a
career of business. He began to sail on the
trading ships and worked for Spinola and other
families. During this he examined the sky and
found that the stars were never the same and by
this he drew the conclusion that the world was
round.

He first sailed the ocean blue.
After pleading with the King and the Queen for
several years to get the ships to go to Asia,
finally he got his way the Queen sold all of her
Jules to get 3 ships made. Then Christopher went
to what he thought was Asia to get more spices
faster.

The voyage
It was a long and hard journey and it got the men
mad and annoyed with Columbus . They were tired
and were sick of the sea. When they finally got
there and met some of the weirdest people you
have ever seen!!!!They were naked and were
unarmed except tiny spears that were clearly for
hunting.
5
The Natives
When Columbus arrived he wasnt the only one
around. There originally were native Americans
there. Columbus called them Indians because he
thought that he was in India. They thought
Columbus how to grow corn and stuff. If it
hadn't been for the native Americans they never
would have survived the winter.

When they got back...
They were greeted with a warm welcome.then the
questions came lots of questions came from the
Queen and the King.then they all thought he was
wrong and that wasn't Asia so this guy Balboa set
out to prove Columbus wrong, and it worked..
7
200 years after Columbus died...

A book was published that said Columbus had found
a new world . And now everyone can know about
