This week in school we are learning about Spanish explorers and every one of us got to choose an explorer. The explorer I chose is Hernando Cortes.
In case you didn’t hear about Hernando Cortes, I will use this post to show you the poster that I made and share some information about this Spanish explorer.
Died: December 2,1547
Age: About 61-62 years old
Children: 3 daughters,1 son
I will share with you some of the paragraphs that I wrote for my poster.
Hernando Cortes wore a shiny armor. He also carried a gun and he had a horse to ride. If you wonder why he wore a shiny armor, well it is to protect him while he is fighting the Aztecs.
Hernando Cortes ate salted pork and cassava bread. Why these foods? Beacuse these types of foods are dry and do not spoil quickly and make good travel food.
Reasons for Exploring
Hernando Cortes started exploring beacuse he was inspired by other explorers like Christopher Columbus and Amerigo Vespucci. Spain sent Hernando to find gold and land on his first day.
Hernando Cortes rode a ship on his exploration. On the boat were over 500 soliders that were there to help Hernando Cortes on his journey .
