Exploration causes and events
Remember the King wants updates every other week.

The magnetic compass was invented by the Chinese Tang or Song dynasty, and their invention quickly spread throughout the Indian Ocean basin . The astrolabe was a simplified version of a tool used by the Perisan and Greek astronomers. It measures the angle of the sun to figure out the latitude. These helped improve sailing.
Nations began to discover the need for more natural resources and for new trade routes. Many empires wanted to find new routes to India, which eventually led Columbus to land in the Americas. Other nations sponsered many voyages to conquer lands , such as King Ferdinand who sponsored many trips in hope of establishing land in the name of Spain.
The Columbian exchange was the trade of goods throughout Europe, West Africa, and the Americas. Goods such as chicken, cattle, barley, and wheat came from Euorope to the Americas. The Europeans also brought over diseases such as small pox. Africa traded Okra for cash crops such as corn and tobacco grown in the Americas.

The British flag should be the only flag here. Britain deserves the right to own this land.
Indigenous people in the Americas began rebelling in response to the harsh labor conditions imposed upon them by the Europeans. Slaves were also brought on ships from Africa and sold in the Americas to plantation owners. The unfair treatment of indigenous people and slaves caused uprisings against their masters.
Storyboard only allows you to use 3 or 6 panels, so I used this extra panel to depict what it looks like in the room of a teenager during social distance learning lessons.
