  1. Wow!!!!!!!
    I had no idea Francisco discovered “New Spain”. I wonder who named New Spain Mexico. I’m so interested about Francisco. I’m defiantly using the links you put in.
    He was ONLY 22 when he discovered New Spain?????!!!!! That’s very young!
    Was he the first person to discover New Spain? You did a wonderful job !

  2. Dear Nathan,
    Wow! Can’t believe someone so young discovered Mexico! Who named New Spain Mexico? Did he get the land for his people?

  3. Good job Nathan! I never knew that he discovered Mexico. And he was only 22! I probably won’t be exploring when I’m 22. It was amazing to know about this person who discovered, “New Spain.” or Mexico.
