Product Description
Columbus Day - Webquest with Key (Christopher Columbus and Columbus Day History) - This 4 page resource includes a webquest related to the history and significance of Columbus Day celebrations and the life of Christopher Columbus as an explorer during the Age of Exploration. The webquest includes a web link to a history.com site that includes information and videos related to the history of Columbus Day and the life of Christopher Columbus.

The webquest includes 12 questions about Columbus Day and Christopher Columbus and requires students to both find information and think critically. The first five questions are related to a video that plays on the website in relation to the life and explorations of Christopher Columbus. Students could watch this video with individual devices or the whole class could watch the video together with it being projected by the teacher. The rest of the questions come from the information on the website and are related to the history of Columbus Day as a U.S. national holiday. The questions include a detailed key for ease of assessment or to use when going over with students.

This is a great activity to complete as a current event around the U.S. holiday of Columbus Day or to have students investigate the history and significance of Christopher Columbus.
