Columbus Day Activities

We did a little one day mini unit about Columbus Day and what it is all about.  We started out by watching a video about Columbus on BrainPOP.  We also played a game and took the quiz on BrainPOP.

Then we made a mini book that I found at Royal Baloo and a couple other free printables from the Columbus Unit she created.

After we finished talking about Columbus and what he did, we made a map to show where he went, using an idea I saw at 2nd Grade Shenanigans.

I drew this (I am clearly not an artist!) on a paper bag and then Rich burned the edges for me to make it look like an old map.
