Students color and assemble their own miniature version of Christopher Columbus. Then they create a photo journal of the figure being introduced to the world 500 years after his times. This fun “travelling style” project gets students thinking and writing about the lives of people during the Age of Exploration and about the impact Columbus’s actions have had on the world of today.
