Christopher Columbus Animated! – Fully animated and interactive, this presentation consists of nine fast-paced animated chapters, each with its own interactive Knowledge Check.

(Allow 25 to 30 minutes for viewing time)
Exploring With Cubed Columbus – Students color and assemble their own miniature version of Christopher Columbus. Then they create a photo journal of the figure being introduced to the world 500 years after his times.
