This activity pack is a collection of 3 games to help young students learn about Columbus Day.
1) Go Explore! - This is a game similar to "Go Fish" where students use picture cards with words to make matches/pairs by asking one another for certain cards. Each card pertains to an important part of the Christopher Columbus story.
2) Land-Ho! - This is a board game similar to "Candyland" where students draw cards and move across the ocean to help Columbus discover the New World.
3) 1492 - This is a card game similar to "War" where students sequence the events of the Christopher Columbus story from the poem, "In 1492" (included). Students who place the card with the event that happened before the others wins the hand.
I hope you enjoy using these games as enrichment activities in your classroom.
