This is an animated, power point presentation that presents the voyages of Christopher Columbus and subsequent discovery of the Americas. The presentation has 24 slides, all of which are "editable" so you can adjust the presentation if you so choose.
Explorer and navigator Christopher Columbus was born in 1451, in the Republic of Genoa, Italy and first went to sea as a teenager, participating in several trading voyages in the Mediterranean and Aegean seas. After being spurned by several countries to explore a new way to the East, the Spanish Monarchy of Ferdinand and Isabella funded his initial voyages.
His legacy was that of hero or goat. He was credited with discovering a New World with an abundance of riches, but his abuse of native Americans earned him the ire of his countrymen and time in jail.
This presentation covers the following:
Marriage & Family
The Monarchs Agreed
Cuba & Hispaniola
Return to Spain
Gold & Hatred
Taking Away the Moon
Back to Spain & Death
