On his shortest voyage, he found ` Vinland. He led the Vikings. Leif Erickson took risks because he went to find new land. He took 35 Vikings to find North America.

5: Ferdinand Magellan By: Kyli I think Ferdinand Magellan is an explorer because he risked his life, he discovered something new, and he is brave. Ferdinand Magellan risked his life because he participated in several battles including the battle of Mactan in 1506, where he was wounded. Ferdinand Magellan discovered the Pacific Ocean and he named it the peaceful sea. (He was the first to discover the Pacific Ocean.) Ferdinand Magellan is brave because on his ship (the Santiago) was sent down the coast on an expedition and his ship was wrecked in a sudden storm and he died along with his crew. We honer him today with a statue in Chile. One thing I did not mention is that, one of his most important adventures was he was the first man to sail around the world. Ferdinand Magellan is an explorer because he's brave, discovered something new, and risked his life.

8: I think Henry Ford is an explorer because he was intelligent, made a lot of money , and created something new. When Henry was a teen, (maybe older) his father wanted him to take over the family farm. Later he got married to Clara Braynt on April,11,1888. Then moved. They had 1 boy, Edsel Ford. Henry Ford was born on July 30,1863 and lived in Fair Lane. I think he was intelligent because as a kid Henry loved to take things apart to see how they work, fix old watches , fix the neighbors tractors, and tinker around. Henry made the first patrol car. In a short amount of time he had already sold a good amount of cars. After working for a couple of years he made over 12 million dollars a week!! Henry also made money by selling horse wagons, regular cars and when he was younger working as a machinist. Later on Henry died of a stroke. Now we have dedicated a car company to him. Henry was an intelligent and creative man. Maybe your parents drive a ford car!!!!

10: Francisco Pizzaro ByJared Penning Do you know Francisco Pizzaro? He is an explorer because he explored land and risked his life. Francisco Pizzaro is also an explorer because he found gold on many expeditions like the the one in Panama. He also found gold on many in South American trips. The Spanish were greedy for gold. Pizzaro looked for the 7 cities of gold. Pizzaro is an explorer because he took risks like traveling to Panama and his crew could have been shipwrecked. He founded Lima -AKA- The city of kings.

They were the first Spaniards to see ocean. Around 1522 he was mayor of Panama. Francisco Pizzaro is an explorer because he traveled to unknown places, risked his life by going on expeditions, and he by traveling because he could of died any day. He searched for gold.
