Product Description

Traditionally, the second Monday in October, classrooms have recognized Columbus Day. Recently, many cities and states have renamed Columbus Day, Indigenous People’s Day. By renaming the day, it encourages classrooms to examine the events from this time in history from a different point of view.

Our product has been designed for primary students and is based on the picture book, Encounter by Jane Yolen. This story is told from a young Taino boy's point of view. It recounts when Christopher Columbus landed on the island of San Salvador in 1492 and discovered the Taino Indians. Years later the boy, now an old man, looks back at the destruction of his people and their culture by the colonizers. 

This product includes:

* Word card with definition

* Use the word in a sentence (write a sentence as a class if necessary)

* Lesson plan: discussion questions for the book Encounter

* Retell activity/booklet

* Word Search

* Vocabulary matching

* Short Biographies of Native Americans with comprehension questions

As always, we look forward to your feedback and welcome new followers. Remember...you get one TpT credit for every dollar you spend on a purchase after you provide feedback. These credits can be used for future purchases.
