The Europeans discovered America but they called it the "New World" because it was a new land for them. The Native Americans were the first people to find America and settle in it.
The three countries that claimed most of the "New World" were Spain, Portugal, and Europe.
The three G's were Gold, God, and Glory. Gold represented being rich. God represented religion and religious beliefs. Glory represented power and rich kings and queens bragging about their goods.
A lot of English people came to North America for opportunities like work and land. Religious believes was another reason people decided to move to North America.
The Triangle Trade was when America, Europe, and Africa made a trading system to make transporting goods easier. Goods like tobacco, cotton, and sugar were transported from Europe to North America. Other goods like rum and other manufactored items were transported from Europe to Africa. When a lot of Native Americans died because of the diseases Europeans brought with them, the Europeans had to find other people to use as slaves. They decided to use Africans because they were the only people who didn't have weapons like guns and gunpowder back then. That was when Africans became slaves and the Triangle trade started.
