Help your students understand the history of Christopher Columbus and learn more about his explorations and legacy with this fun power point and activities pack!
This download includes:
Christopher Columbus PPT
I've included a PDF file (works just as well as a PPT file) and the PPT file. **22 slides total describing the explorations and events of Christopher Columbus's life and legacy. Worded so young minds can understand!
You can discuss with your class before the PPT what they already know and what they might want to learn about Christopher Columbus. Then after the PPT have them write about what they learned.
Christopher Columbus Writing Page
Primary and regular lined paper. Have students rephrase what they learned from the PPT to write about what they learned about Christopher Columbus.
If I Was an Explorer
This is a fun page where they get to use their imaginations and dream up their own voyage! They fill in where they might go, what their ship might be called etc.
My Explorer Supply List
Students can brainstorm a list of things they might need if they were to go on a voyage of their own.
This can be a fun morning work page to peak their interest in Christopher Columbus. Or a good review as well!
All About Columbus
Test your students knowledge after the power point lesson and reading booklets to see what they retained.
I had my students decorate their hats and write their names on them. Then they placed their hat on the top of a piece of construction paper and their “If I was an explorer page” at the bottom to display on our bulletin board.
Made for early and advanced readers. The booklets are great for centers! Your students can color them when they are finished reading!
