European Explorer Project- Amerigo Vespucci

Storyboard Text

  • 1500...
  • We, Portugal, will fund your third voyage to Asia, Vespucci.
  • The two times before, this is where I found the Amazon River, and explored the coast of East Asia.
  • This land does not resemble Asia at all, does it? I wonder what that's about.
  • We will check the maps!
  • So, actually, this landmass is an entirely different continent from Asia and Europe.
  • I knew it!
  • 1507...
  • We should name the new world "Americus" or "America" after Amerigo Vespucci because it was his voyage that originally helped us to figure out that it was not Asia!
  • The Americas!
