|The Columbus Notebook Lesson is available for free at TPT!|
Everyday we talk about a different aspect of Columbus' voyage to help the students better understand what happened so long ago. On Columbus day, we discuss who Columbus was using the Columbus Notebook file and later in the day, the students make the Columbus page in their The Ocean Blue books. Day 2 we talk about the three ships and make the ships page. Day 3 we talk about the Taino Indians and discovering the New World. At the end of the week not only do students understand why we celebrate Columbus Day, but also have a wonderful little book to take home and read over and over again!
The last page of this file has a surprise! Because we are an Arts Magnet, we tied in music and artwork depicting life during the time of Columbus. Just click on the links to see them and share with your students.
