Exploration Causes and Effects By: Maisey Warner

Mrs. Lyon 4A April 4, 2017

Cause 1

Europeans were very curious. People from Europe have never experienced outside of their town or homes. Since they haven't experienced anything, curiosity became something that they were wondering about. They wanted to explore around and about the world. In our class notes, we were talking about Columbus. Columbus wanted to explore and find places that he wanted to go to. He set out to find what he wanted. The Europeans wanted to explore just like Columbus did. So they did.

Cause 2

The Europeans wanted to learn more about technology. When they wanted to learn more about technology, they asked people if they could help them. They needed help by funding money to help them pay for it. Back then, things were way more expensive because money was hard to get. In the Owlcation website, it says: "Monarchs provided the funding and support needed for inventors to work long hours" (Owlcation para. 8). This helped the Europeans and their wantings/needs.

Effect 1

When the Europeans were curious and wanted to explore, they did. Being curious about the world effected them because they found resources. They found resources all along the Nile River. They did lots of trading and learned different life styles from being with China. As well as learning about silk and different trading items that were being traded. In our class notes, we learned that Columbus also found resources just like the Europeans did.

Effect 2

When the Europeans wanted to learn more about technology, it effected them by them having to communicate, navigate, and globalize. This helped them by meeting new people. It also helped them because it caused them to advance in mapping. In the Owlcation website, it says: "...significant advances were made in charts and mapping, allowing for more efficient and detailed communication of navigational information" (Owlcation para. 8). Because of this effect, it allowed them to get technology in ship building that made the boats go faster and long distances.
