Storyboard Text

  • Tonight, I will read you the story of Henry Hudson.
  • Back in the 1600's there lived a lovely young man from Europe. His name was Henry Hudson. He became an explorer looking for a faster trade route from Europe to Asia
  • His first voyage was unsuccessful. So he tried again by sailing north over Russia. He failed again and had to sail home.
  • I need a new telescope! I never even saw the ice.
  • After a few failed attempts, he decided to sail west on his ship the Half Moon. He first landed in Nova Scotia, Canada before sailing south to an island in New York that we now call Manhattan.
  • Although Henry Hudson discovered the water separating New York and New Jersey in 1609, he wasn't the first person to explore the river. However, because he made it 150 miles north on the water, the river was named after him. Yeah Henry!
  • Wasn't that a great story? Hope we can read about another explorer again. I wonder who we'll read about next.
