Oh! Well in that case, let's go inside and start the lesson!The lesson of "The Age of Exploration".
The Dangers at Sea...
Some of the dangers at sea were the sicknesses you could get. One of the worst was Scurvy, which turned your gums and teeth black.
Other dangers included getting lost at sea, getting shipwrecked due to storms, and running out of food and water.
New Technologies Used on the Journey...
Others include lead weights, cross staffs, and triangular sails.
One of the technologies used was the compass, which helped sailors travel more accurately.
Another was the astrolabe, which helped determine the latitude of the ship.
A different technology was the use of knotted ropes, which determined the speed of the ship.

When I set sail, I was looking for gold and riches in the area of Florida.
I am most famous for being the first European to discover the Mississippi River.
Reasons for Exploration
One of the reasons people set sail for the Americas was for glory, also known as land.
Land was very important in the age of exploration. People would race to get to the Americas, and sometimes even small wars would erupt over land claims.
When countries claimed land, their country got larger, gaining them more power and glory.
That was a great lesson Ms.!
You too! Bye!
Thank you children! Now, go on home. Tomorrow, we'll start multiplication and division in math. Have a good day!
