1  Complete on loose-leaf:  Draw a map from your home to AHS. Include as much detail as possible.

2  Unit Essential Question: Why are some places more culturally diverse or similar than others?  Today’s LEQ: What encouraged exploration during the late 1400s & 1500s?

3 Today’s LEQ: What encouraged European exploration during the 1400s and 1500s?

4  Between 1400 & 1700, a new world opened up for Europe  Voyages to new lands led to colonization, wealth, power, & the diffusion of goods & ideas

5  The Three G’s:  Gold  Glory  God

6  Gold = hot item explorers were looking for but it’s really wealth they were after  Europeans also desired spices  Other natural resources would come to be sold for profit as well  timber, sugar, tobacco, ivory, etc.

7  This competition was enhanced by the idea of mercantilism – a nation’s strength depends on its wealth  More money = better military  Fixed amount of wealth

8  The Renaissance fostered humanism – explorers hoped a great discovery would bring honor to their names; kings wanted glory for their country  Printing press made this possible The Triumph of Fame, a Flemish tapestry from 1502.

9  After the Reformation, competition springs up among Christian sects  Colonization & missionary work became a race to convert native peoples to a particular brand of Christianity

10  Advances in technology made the Age of Exploration possible  Navigational technology like the compass and astrolabe allowed sailors to plot courses even when out of sight of land  The caravel was a light, fast sailing ship that was easily maneuverable and could be armed

11  1 st to encourage new explorations was Prince Henry of Portugal, known as “Prince Henry the Navigator”  Started an institute for seafaring and exploring  Combined ship technology learned from Islam with new European innovations

12  Observe:  Describe what you see – what do you notice first?  What looks strange or unfamiliar?  What place or places do you see? Graphical elements? Words (familiar or unfamiliar)?  Reflect:  Why do you think this map was made? Who was the intended audience?  How does this map compare to current maps of this place? What would be different if this map were made today? What would be the same?  What does this map tell you about what the people who made it knew and what they didn’t?  Question:  What do you wonder about… Who? What? When? Where? Why? How? Come up with at least two thought-provoking questions you have about your section of the map.  Be ready to present your map analysis!

14  Propose how U.S. history may have evolved differently if this map was not created.  All nations have laws to protect their antiquities. Why did the German government permit the Waldseemüller Map, World 1507 to come to the Library of Congress?
