Exploring during the Age of Exploration was fraught with violence and danger as well as thrilling discoveries and beautiful lands. Kids will be introduced to the complex issues of land ownership and political intrigue, as well as the interconnections between the history of a people and the history of the land that they called their own.After sailing with Columbus on his second trip to the New World, Ponce de Leon devoted his life to searching for gold and the mythical Fountain of Youth. Students will discover that although this important explorer never found the Fountain of Youth, he did govern Puerto Rico for Spain, and created the first European settlement in Florida.
