  • Written by: Serena Wen
  • Hi! I'm Ferdinand.
  • Ferdinand Magellan and Juan Elcano were both sailors
  • Hello! My name is Juan.
  • Ferdinand and Juan shared a goal to be the first to sail around the entire world. So in September 1519, they set sail from Portugal with a crew of sailors and five ships.
  • I'll go check on the crew first.
  • I'll be captain and steer the ship while you keep track of where we are.
  • They sailed to Patagonia on the East Side of South America. While they were there, some sailors were unhappy and one of the ships was lost. 
  • Ferdinand, Juan, and their four ships sailed for a month through a stormy narrow waterway. A group of sailors got scared and took a ship to sail back home. 
  • This is too dangerous! We're going back home!
  • The three remaining ships finally made it to a safe calm ocean. It was so nice compared to the storms, Ferdinand named it the Pacific after the word pacifo, which meant peaceful in Spanish.
  • This ocean is so calm and peacful! Let's call it the Pacific Ocean.
