The New World Nacho Noguerol, Laura Alcaide, Lucia Hernandez, Pablo Ramos and Alejandra Garcia.

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to my presentation. My name is Nacho Noguerol. The topic of my presentation today is 'The New World'.

The reason that this topic is useful for you is Because it`s interesting..

We are going to talk about 4 things. These are, firstly, H istory., and secondly English. Next we're going to talk about Technology. Finally we are going to look at Math, Natural Science and Spanish language..

Due to the l imited time I have today, just 7 minutes, I 'd appreciate it if you would keep your questions unti l the end. Thank you.

Firstly, H istory.. I 'm Alejandra and I explain the H istory.

H istory

The Mayas has pre-Columbian religion .The Mayas were in Mesoamerica , in the southeast of Mexico 3000 years ago. Dur ing this times , the Mayas spoke 44 lenguages different. The l ife in the Maya vil lage wasn’t find in the war but find in the fields of work and the creation of a big architectural works. In the empire Aztecs didn't exist coins but exist the barter with cocoa. In this times the conquerors wore a helmet, trousers of thick wool and strongs boots of fur. The pyramids are an important part of ancient Mesoamerica architecture. They are very Famous because of the complexity and the expressions variety. The buildings are decorated by paint red because this stone , the l imestone, is very abundant in this places. . That's the end of the first point. Now we wil l move on to the second point, which is

about English.

I 'm Nacho and my point is English:

The explorers. Christopher Columbus: He thought he could sail a ship from his home in Europe to India. Columbus and his men set sail in 1492 from Spain. In 1493 he returned to Spain. He discovered America.

Hernan Cortes: He was born in Extremadura, in 1485. Then in 1502 he decided to go to the New World.Cortes found all ies in Mexico: The Tlaxcalans. They helped him in battle and with food and supplies.

Pizarro: In 1531, an expedition led by Francisco Pizarro went to the Inca Empire.In 1532, Pizarro met with Atahualpa, the emperor of the Inca Empire. In 1541, some of Almagro's mens , his old friend, ki l led Pizarro. OT HER EXPLORERS Magallanes and Elcano : They went around the world. Magellan died in the trip. Of the 237 men who set out on five ships to circumnavigate the earth in 1519, only 18 completed the circumnavigation and managed to return to Spain in 1522. .

That's all for the second point.

Next, Technology. Hello! My name is Lucia and I am going to talk about technology.

1 ยบ-New ship different from the Mediterranean: Galleons: these ships were powered by sail rather than by men using oars. 2ยบ-Tools of America and Spain: Astrolabe: determine the latitude, Quadrant: is an old instrument used to measure angles in astronomy and navigation, Maps reliable and Magnetic compass: is a tool that provides guidance, which is based on the property of the magnetized needle. Quadrant Astrolabe Magnetic compass 3ยบ -Progress in the navigation: For traders: sailing was a good option because there were few roads and there were a lot of thieves. I t used radar and satellites to determine the position of a ship or plane..

Finally, Math, Natural Science and Spanish language..

I 'm Pablo Ramos. My fourth point is: about math

Navegate measures The word originates from the Greek word "stadion", a measure of length approximately of 200 metres. Calculate latitude A quadrant is an instrument that is used to measure angles up to 90°, and it’s used to know the latitude too. Astrolabe and compass use - An astrolabe is an astronomical instrument Its many uses include locating and predicting the positions of the Sun, Moon, planets, and stars A compass is a navigational instrument used to determin direction relative to the Earth's magnetic poles. astrolabe, quadrant, compass, stadium, latitude.

I 'm Laura and my fourth point is: N atur a l Sciences: Different crops :the culture of corn against the European cultura of wheat or the Asiatic r ice. Spanish Language: New words for trees, plants and food. Natural Sciences: Corn is a grass domesticated by indigenious people in Mesoamerica in prehistoric times. The Aztecs and the Mayas cultivated it in numerous varieties throughout central and southern America.Rice is the seed of a monocot plant Oryza sativa. As a cereal grain, it is the most important staple food for a large part of the world´s human populatin, specially in Latin America. Wheat is agrass , originally from The Fertile Crescent region of The Near East but now cultivated worldwide. In 2007 world production of wheat was 607 mil l ion tons making it the third most-procted cereal after corn and r ice. Spanish Language: teh new words from tres: Banana, avocado, lemon,. Plants: Pumpkings, potatoes ,tomatoes, cocoa, sugarcane. Food: bananas, avocados, lemons, chocolate, tomatoes. . That's the end of the final point.

In conclusion, in this presentation my objective was to The discovery of America. . I have covered 4 main points, firstly, H istory.. Secondly we talked about English. Next we discussed Technology. Finally we looked at Math, Natural Science and Spanish language.. I hope you have found this presentation useful. Thank you. Questions, please? If there are no more questions, that is the end of my presentation. Thank you.
