Product Description
This pack of activities is a perfect way to investigate Columbus in a way that is meaningful and critical for your older students. I don't know about you, but as a 5th grade teacher, I've always shied away from these kinds of activities because they tend to be geared toward lower grade levels. So I decided to create activities that were cute, engaging, AND critical.

Included in the pack are:
*Lesson plans & detailed instructions for the activities in the pack
*4 mini-posters to access prior knowledge on an anchor chart
*KWL chart for students
*8-page mini-booklet on Columbus and his explorations (reading level is between 4th and 5th grade)
*Facts & Myths activity sheet
*A craftivity (with all necessary materials and instructions) to go with the writing prompt "If I discovered a new world..." (geared to have students synthesize and analyze Columbus' actions and write about what they would do differently)
*Persuasive prompt with writing paper for students to analyze whether or not Columbus deserves a national holiday, including grading rubric

Check out the preview to see a sample of what's included in this pack!

Now I can't wait to teach my kiddos about Columbus Day! Please leave feedback and let me know how the pack worked for you, and how you used it in your classroom. You will earn TPT credits for free TPT money just by leaving feedback! Follow me for updates to this product, and other items in my store!
