This is the first passage from my reading packet on Conquistadors intended for 5th grade. I wanted something that could be used as homework or morning work to go along with our unit on explorers. Our history book only provides one short paragraph on the Spanish Conquistadors, and I felt the need to provide a more well-rounded view of these Spanish explorers without overwhelming students with information.
