: This poster activity will work perfectly for Columbus Day.
Let your students express themselves for Columbus Day using this 8.5 x 11 "All About Christopher Columbus" poster. This poster will look great hanging outside your classroom as the holiday approaches, and parents will enjoy reading them when they are sent home.
Because if doesn't specifically say Columbus Day on it, you can also use this another time of the year if you are simply studying Columbus as part of an explorer unit.
The Columbus poster activity has plenty of places for students to add their own creative touches with color.
If you are reading a story about Christopher Columbus for Columbus Day or watching a movie, this would be a great follow-up activity for reflection.
You could also use as a center activity or even as morning work. Use it in your classroom however you would like.
The sections for the students to fill out are:
*Place for name
*An explorer is...
*When Columbus set sail west across the Atlantic, what was he trying to accomplish....
*country that sponsored Columbus
*present day name of his first landing site....
*character trait with evidence from his actions
*another fun fact
Please do check out my other posters. I have one for most holidays. They look so nice on a bulletin board or hanging outside the classroom. I get so many compliments on them.
