History 1: Christopher Columbus

This children's educational video tutorial teaches about Christopher Columbus' discovery of the American continents over 500 years ago on October 12, 1492. We explain how Columbus was looking for the Indies, but found America instead.

Columbus made four voyages to the New World. He always believed that he had sailed to the Indies. It was Amerigo Vespucci who discovered that it was, in fact, the New World. For this reason, America was named after him instead of Columbus.
