Storyboard Text

  • It was 1492. When Columbus and his crew members had founded and landed in the Americas. The Europeans had just founded this new piece of land. The Europeans decided to call this land, The 'New World'. It really wasn't new, because there were already Native Americans living there! It was just new to the Europeans. The 'New World' was North, South, and Central Americas.
  • England
  • The three countries to claim most of the 'New World', were,
  • Spain
  • and Portugal
  • There are three G's. The three G's are, gold, god and glory. 
  • Gold, means money that the Europeans wished to make from the resources they found in their new land. 
  • Next is god. God represented religion. The Europeans wanted a place where they can practice their religion peacefully. Many Europeans wanted to convert Native Americans to Christianity. 
  • The last G is glory. Glory represented power. Kings and Queens wanted to show off how powerful they were. Being powerful meant having lots of land. If you have land in the Americas, or anywhere, and if you had lots of it you were powerful. Glory is more of bragging rights. 
  • I have more land in the 'New World' than you do. 
  • The Triangle Trade was a trade between three continents, Europe, Africa and North America. The three continents would trade the resources they needed. The trade benefited everyone, expect the slaves. People from Africa were the ones who were harmed by it. They were the ones who were captured and were slaves.
