Product Description
Do you have to teach about Christopher Columbus in your standards? Columbus Day has been a controversial “holiday”. Yet it is history and we can teach the facts and allow students to form their own opinions and feelings.

This resource answers the following questions:
☆ Did Columbus discover North America (or the United States)?
☆ Did he discover the world was round?
☆ Did they really believe they would sail off the edge of the earth?
☆ Was he really a hero?
☆ Why is there controversy surrounding Columbus?
☆ When did Columbus Day celebrations begin?

**Please look at the preview to make sure this is appropriate for your grade level.**

This resource includes:
informational “teacher” book and student copies of the same. Students use the book for activities included in the resource which include:

Glossary for unfamiliar words. These are words that are highlighted and italicized in the informational reader.

Word Search which uses vocabulary from the reader

Close Reading Activity where students use different color pencils/crayons/markers to underline information asked for. This can be used as an independent activity, center activity or for homework

Columbus Day Poem which can be used to teach specific skills or used for discussion about the controversy surrounding Columbus

Fact or Opinion students read statements and decide if they are fact or opinion

Writing Activities Choose the activity that is appropriate for the level/maturity of the students you teach (or use both)
