3: Would you like to know where Ponce De Leon searched, what do they look for, was Bimini real, where did the fountain of youth originate, who started the legend and where did it come from? Some of the places he searched were Saint Augustine, the Florida keys, and the Bahamas. The things that they looked for was, fresh water, salt water, and little creeks and ponds and then they would taste it. Bimini was NOT real. The legend started from Herodotus, the Alexander romance, and the stories of Prester John.These were so of the places they encountered and looked for back then.

4: Navigate your way to life | If you could go to Jamaica, to search for the Fountain of Youth, would you? Would you stay in a safe harbor? Well, if so, you might need to know what a safe harbor is. A safe harbor is one that is protected from danger. Do you think you would find a safe harbor? To say so, from a person's random perspective, maybe you could find a safe harbor if you were to survive that long. The trip might take up to 5-6 weeks, depending on where you live and how long away the trip would be. You would land somewhere on the island of Jamaica. The ship you would probably hold about 200-400 people. In Jamaica there are many safe harbors to dock the ship.

7: I am a navigator and I am sailing to Jamaica. One of the questions that I asked one of my fellow navigators is what time is the best to sail? It took me a couple of months but I figured it out. Jamaica is warm year round but the best time to go is Mid March to May. My second question was, how long will it take? One of my crew members had sailed there before she said it will take about a Month. As I found out about how Jamaica's warm weather year round it is best to dress in short sleeves and shorts. As we land there and our adventure goes on, when we get to land we should expect few storms and warm weather. I hope we have a safe voyage. I cant wait to feel the warm sun beating down on me and the beautiful ocean coming towards me as the waves crash.

8: An Astrolabe is a tool the settlers used to measure an angle above the horizon of the sun and stars to determine latitude. | Some of the other tools were a magnetic compass and that is a piece of magnetized iron. Last but not least you are thinking of what did the settlers travel in it is a sailboat .

9: For this project my island to search for the Fountain of Youth is Jamaica. As the navigator I will need to figure these questions out such as what ocean do I need to get on while guiding the ship. The answer is going to North Atlantic ocean and going through the Caribbean Sea. Jamaica is loaded with rivers, trails, lakes, and it is an island. For this project I am going to search through Jamaica to find the Fountain of Youth. |

10: Nature in Jamaica | There are many types of plants and animals in Jamaica. You can eat lots of the plants and animals but stay away from crocodiles, vicious mongoose, cactuses, and some snakes. There are many types of freshwater fish, lizards, butterflies, crayfish, and 200 different types of birds! There are also many different types of editable plants like, banana trees, oranges, star fruit, watermelons, limes, and sugar cane. |

12: As an anthropologist I have to research the natives on the land of Jamaica so that if we do encounter Indians I can help my shipmates with . The Taino Indians lived on Jamaica but in the 1400 it was called Hispaniola. They had a very sophisticated culture, some of their traditions was to paint their own bodies and wear nose rings , earrings and necklaces. Some of these jewelry pieces wear made of gold. Some of these Indians are still alive today in Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Florida. They planted corn or maize, beans, squash, tobacco, peanuts, and peppers. If we do encounter these Indians we would not need to bare gifts of any kind to pass through safely, because they are very peaceful and friendly. The tribe is so friendly to the Taions that they were considered one tribe altogether. Yet recent studies show that they were two different tribes. When Pone de Leon searched more on these people he figured out that the Indians would not want war but have gotten into many wars before and that they will do anything not to start a war, but their tribe was a little weaker than other tribes so most of the Indians would die in the war but they still had a population to grow on. Now that I have completed my research my friends and I can try to find the fountain of youth with the help of the Taino Indians.
