When France sent explorers to the New World, it was searching for wealth, colonies and a route to the East. Follow along with our two young hosts as they learn how the French established New France and claimed most of present-day Canada. Hear about Giovanni da Verrazano, the first European to sail into present-day New York Bay; and Jacques Cartier, who discovered the St. Lawrence River. Hear about Samuel de Champlain, who established the first permanent settlement in North America at Quebec; and Louis Joliet and Jacques Marquette, who traversed the Mississippi River Valley; as well as Rene-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle, who claimed the land at the mouth of the Mississippi for France. Part of the multivolume Explorers of the World DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and is available online.

Only available in the US.
