The discovery of America
Nowadays everybody knows what the world “America” means. First of all it is the name of the country – the United States of America – or just America. And then America is the name of the two continents – North and South America, form the part of the world called America.
Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1492.
“In fourteen hundred and ninety-two Columbus sailed the ocean blue…”
This is a song that many children learn about Christopher Columbus and his journey to America.
We don’t know much about the man. He was born in Italy but lived in Spain for a long time. He was a seaman and made many sea voyages. In 1492 the King and the Queen of Spain gave him money to go to India. He decided to sail west as he was sure that our planet was round. And after sailing 4000 miles (6400 kilometers), he reached some land. Columbus thought that it must be India but it was not. It was a new land – a new continent. It was America – Central America in fact. People began to speak about the land as “the New World”.
In fourteen hundred and ninety-two
Columbus sailed the ocean blue…(Pupils listen to the poem)

About the sailors, those strong brave men!
