About This Lesson

This essay presents 9 documents showing motives of Columbus, da Gama, Magellan, Cortez, Pizarro, Catholic Friars, slave owners, and mercantilists. The task is to analyze and explaining whether gaining wealth or spreading Christianity was the primary motive for the explorers, conquistadors, and colonizers - so it presents a great opportunity for DBQ practice as well as making a claim and counterclaim essay. Most documents mention both Christianity and also wealth as motives, so students need to decide which was more important.
