Storyboard Text

  • Amerigo Vespucci was born on March 9, 1451 in Florence, Italy. 
  • Even as a kid, Vespucci loved books and maps.
  • He began to work as a supervisor for ship outfitting, which increased his interest in exploration.
  • You must travel south. You can use a compass to help you.
  • Thank you for your help. I might just go there myself now.
  • One day, Vespucci met Christopher Columbus and they discussed New World exploration.
  • Using technology and tools to help him, Amerigo Vespucci sailed the coast of South America and discovered that it was a separate continent, not part of Asia. Because of his discoveries, what we now know as North and South America were named after him. 
  • When he came back from his trip, he became a master navigator. His job was to help other conquistadors, or Spanish explorers, sail to the New World and other places.
