Day 2--

Begin today by taking a brief survey about some vocabulary for an upcoming assignment. 
The survey is not graded. 
Try to complete it in less than 4 or 5 minutes. 

When you're finished, you may return to yesterday's Explorers' Chart assignment, or to your Explorers' Slideshow (both due tomorrow).

Or, if you've finished those, you may want to get a head start on tonight's reading assignment from the textbook:

READ Motives and Means & A Race for Riches (194-197)  Due Wed. 1/30
Vasco da Gama (196)
Melaka (196)
Ferdinand Magellan (196)
Treaty of Tordesillas (197)
Amerigo Vespucci (197
What impact did explorers such as Marco Polo have on European explorers that followed? (194)
How do the terms “God, Gold and Glory” help explain the motives of European explorers in the New World? (195)

If we have time, we'll watch a short video: Turning points in history: Age of Discovery (3:16)
