Conquest of the Americas: The Southeast

St. Augustine is the oldest continuously inhabited European settlement in the continental borders of the US.  Why did the Spanish set up colonies in what is now Florida? What were they looking for and did they find it? Why did France later set up a colony and what happened to it? These are the questions we will be answering with this lesson.

  • Can you name which countries colonized the Americas?
  • Anecdotes from my trip to St. Augustine over the summer.

  • Why did France colonize Florida?
  • What are some good vocabulary learning practices?
