Product Description
Christopher Columbus
a Mini-Biography

UPDATED 3-30-16 TO INCLUDE TABLE OF CONTENTS, HEADINGS, AND GLOSSARY. ALSO INCLUDED: VOCABULARY 4-SQUARE AND MAKING WORDS ACTIVITY

PLEASE DOWNLOAD PREVIEW before purchasing.

I wrote this mini-biography especially for my students. I wanted a text that was readable for my second graders, yet I wanted to give them sufficient historically correct information about Christopher Columbus. The biography refers to the “new” land discovered by Columbus. I think it important to help students understand that there were natives living there, but the land was largely unknown by the rest of the world. I also chose not to go into detail about Columbus’ relations with the natives, a topic for later understanding. I hope you find this mini-biography to be useful for your students.

Just print back-back–to back (not including cover) on your printer to make a master. Then feed the two-sided master into a copy machine to make multiple copies for students.

I also created a simple follow up sheet, vocabulary 4-square, and Making Words activity to accompany.
