History Hands On - Christopher Columbus by Mary Tucker
Have any of your students been on a sea voyage? Discovered a new land?
Navigated by dead reckoning? Designed their own coat of arms? They will
as you go through this book.
Through creative activities such as
an action rhyme/skit, songs, map making and games students will discover
what motivated Columbus, what problems he faced and what he achieved.
Children will eat some of the foods Columbus' crew had to eat every day.
They'll experience some of the challenges of living in a new world by
trading with one another, listing items they'd have to get from home
and learning new words. And they'll become familiar with world geography
like never before. Teachers are provided with background information,
source materials and resources.
