Explorer
Explorers are
people who
travel to or
investigate
unknown places.
Why did people explore new
lands?
GOD
Religion was very
important to people,
and many explorers
left their own country
to spread their
religion to new
lands.
GLORY
Many average people
longed to have
“celebrity status” so
they would set out on
an adventurous
voyage on the open
seas to see what they
could find.
GOLD
Explorers took the
risk of setting sail
because the pay off
could be HUGE. If
an explorer found
new land, he would
be paid in gold and
riches by the king
and queen.
Henry the Navigator
To bring Portugal more
trade and power and
to spread
Christianity, this
prince sponsored
expeditions.
