Storyboard Text

  • Being the son of a wool merchant, Christopher Columbus got a job offer on a merchant ship in his teens and remained at sea until 1470.
  • While sailing with the merchants north along the Portuegese coast, French privateers attacked his ship. The boat sank and young Christopher Columbus floated to shore on a scrap of wood. He then made his way to Lisbon, Portugal where he studied mathematics, astronomy, cartography, and navigation.
  • SO LONG !!!!
  • Christopher Columbus became older and he thought sailing to Asia through the Cape Of Good Hope would be difficult. So he made a plan to sail west of the Atlantic Ocean. He recited his plan to King Ferdinand of Aragon and Isbella Of Castile. 
  • On August 3,1492, Columbus and his crew set sail in three ships: The Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria. On October 12th, the ships made landfall - not in Asia, as Columbus assumed, but on one of the Bahamian islands.
  • Well... I am!!!
  • Are you ready for this? 
  • Columbus and his crew set their foot on Bahamas. They got some natives from the Bahamas and set sail to Spain after 3 voyages to the Caribbean Islands again and again. 
  • Welcome aboard!!! 
  • After three voyages to the Caribbean, Columbus was jailed by the Spanish Crown for abuses to the natives while aboard. 
  • WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME???
