He is well respected because he "discovered the Americas" and he deserves this honor because he plays an important role in history.
He is so well honored because the Europeans think he was the first person to find the New Land. I think yes and no because he made the first big settlements in North America and no because he was no the first man in America.
I agree. He was not really the first person in America. Also he wasn't English, didn't sail on the Mayflower, and he didn't prove the world was round. Students get so much mixed up about Christopher Columbus.
Christopher Columbus was so well respected because he, and everyone else at that time, thought he discovered America. His honor wasn't deserved because he didn't discover America, and he didn't even do what he set out to do in the first place.
Columbus is assumed to be the first man to set foot in America, but actually the vikings and natives were there long before he was. No i do not think he deserves this honer, because well it not true. My opinion only.
He is well respected because they say he discovered the america when he did not so no he dose not deserve the honor.
Christopher Columbus is so "well respected" because he "discovered" America. He in no way deserves to be so respected for this because he didn't discover crap. There were people in America before him. He just decided that since no one else had heard of it he would just lay claim to discovering it because he is like a teenage girl and just craves attention. He obviously knew that there were people there and just didn't even care. He marched in there and took over a country that wasn't even his. He deserves no respect for "discovering" this country.
Isabelle, good answer.. Don't say "crap" though this is for middle school students and that's a high school or older word!
Christopher Columbis Is famous for his beautiful wife, Pocahontas.He is also famous for discovering Scotland when England didn't have enough resources to go on. Basically is is respected for saving England.
PS he discovered Potatoes.
I'm not really sure since technically, he didn't discover America.
