He was the first European to reach the Philippines. Magellan was killed there, but his crew went on from there to become the first explorers in history to go all the way around the world.

He discovered new animals -penguins, and animals in South America that he called "camels without humps."

Ferdinand Magellan diccovered Magellan's strait, a western route to get to the Spice Isles by sea. He sailed using the ship Trinidad but was killed during the Battle of Mactan (a newly discovered island in the Philipines)

Being the fist man to circumnavigate the world, he improved maps and voyages everywhere. He proved that the world was round, and that travel could be easier than a life-or-death voyage (despite the fact that he died).

Does Ferdinand Magellan want to claim new land for Spain?

No i am a social studies teacher and remember that Magellan went arund the world

>>For a social studies teacher, your answer is gramatically, syntaxically, and informationally rather lacking.

Magellan did end up claiming quite a few areas for Spain on his voyages, such as the "Spice Islands". However, he is remembered for sailing around the world (although he himself didn't quite make it all the way--he was killed halfway).

What did Ferdinand Magellan do?

Magellan, though Portuguese by birth, captained a Spanish fleet with the intention of reaching the Spice Islands (Maluku, Indonesia) by sailing west around South America.

The expedition, from 1519-1522, became famous as the first to sail completely around the Earth. After Magellan was killed during a battle against natives in the Philippines (1521), the Basque captain Juan Sebastian Elcano took command and completed the voyage by sailing west around Africa. Only one ship out of the original five made it back to Spain, and only 18 of the 270 crew members (4 others survived and returned after capture by the Portuguese).

Does Magellan has the right to claim the Philippines for Spain?

From his point of view, he had permission from the King, who was given authority by the Pope, to do exactly what he did.

From the point of view of the Filipino people, of course he did not have the right to claim ownership of a country 10,000 miles away with its own languages and cultures.
