Q1: How did Christopher Columbus address the Queen and King of Spain?
 A1: Most High and Mighty Sovereigns

Q2: According to this document, find one way that Columbus wanted to change the lives of Native Americans.
 A2: cristopher columbus wanted to build towns and churches.

Q3: In this journal entry Columbus described the environment. List three things that he described.
 A3:These people are similar to those of the islands just mentioned, and have the same language and customs. I saw many trees, very dissimilar to those of our country, and many of them had branches of different sorts upon the same trunk; and such a diversity was among them that it was the greatest wonder in the world to behold. Thus, for instance, one branch of a tree bore leaves like those of a cane, another branch of the same tree, leaves similar to those of the lentisk. In this manner a single tree bears five or six different kinds.
Here are also whales. Beasts, we saw none, nor any creatures on land save parrots and lizards, but a boy told me he saw a large snake. No sheep nor goats were seen, and although our stay here has been short, it being now noon, yet were there any, I could hardly have failed of seeing them.
