History

Week 1

Read the short comprehension and answer the questions.

Christopher Columbus is famous for being an explorer.  He was born in Genoa in Italy, in 1451.  Christopher Columbus learned to sail in a wooden ship with sails.  He used the stars, the sun and a compass to find his way at sea.  His dream was to go to Asia (especially India and China), but he needed money to do this.  The King and Queen of Spain gave him the money he needed to buy ships.

He set sail from Europe on 3rd August 1492, with his sailors.  They did not know where they would land.  They set sail with three ships: the Santa Maria, the Nina and the Pinta.  The journey took so long, and they were running out of food and water.  On October 11th 1492, they began to see flocks of birds flying above the ship and seaweed and branches from trees floating in the water.  A short while later they saw land. They did not realise that they had landed on a new continent-America.
