This last week 5th grade has been studying explorers. Each student had to do an explorer report. My report was on Hernando Cortes. He conquered Mexico and found the Aztec treasure. The Aztec treasure was the most valuable treasure in the world. I think that Hernando's purpose was to conquer land. But, my dad disagrees. He thinks that Hernando wanted treasure not land. In school we learned that Hernando wanted land. My dad still thought that Hernando wanted treasure so he tried changing my project. Now I think Hernando went for land and treasure. I can't believe that lots of explorers tried to get the Aztec treasure and Hernando Cortes got it.
