What's In a Name?

Young scholars research Cabeza de Vaca and other conquistadors. They review how names were given to Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca's family and discuss the achievements, risks, experiences, and characteristics of de Vaca. They write an acrostic poem using the letters of de Vaca's name to illustrate his traits.
