Product Description
We all know the famous poem that starts, "In fourteen hundred ninety-two Columbus sailed the ocean blue." Most have also now accepted that the poem contains a large number of inaccuracies as it glosses over the cruelness and atrocities perpetrated by Columbus and his crew.
This assignment invites students to look critically at this famous poem, and use their knowledge of Columbus to re-write it so that it reflects a historical accuracy (bonus points for keeping a rhyme!)
