Exploration & Expansion (1400-1700)

Elementary  /  Social Studies /  Exploration & Expansion (1400-1700)

In 1492 Christopher Columbus set out to find a route to Asia and the East Indies. Because he believed the world was smaller than it actually is, Columbus arrived in the Caribbean, not Asia. With this new land discovery European explorers soon followed Columbus’ lead and discovered a New World, called America. As exploration and expansion continued new trade routes were opened and global colonization began.
