Reason #2 - Gold, God, and Glory

My second reason, for why you should have your kids watch tis movie, was the fact that they included the reasons why the europeans came.  The reasons were the three G's/F's - which are gold, god, and glory/fame, fortune, and faith. In the opening scene they are singing a song that is about the reasons why ALL europeans started to come to the Americas.  Because the Spanish had such great finds in Mexico, the English thought they could strike it rich as well in the Americas. Another thing is as soon as they arrived they started mining for gold.  Another reason they came is that they wanted to be famous and to spread the word of christianity, because they thought that it was their duty to do so. Now, with those three examples, you can now see why that topic supports my idea of having your kids watch the movie.
