Looking for a fun way to have students connect with Columbus Day? This activity has students plot the locations of 25 cities/towns in the USA that have a reference to Columbus' journey across the Atlantic by drawing a little sailboat as a location marker.
Included in this activity are the coordinates, map, and each of the 25 cities with a name with a reference to Columbus.
Some of the names included are:
Santa Maria, California
...and many more!
An answer key is provided with the locations of the coordinates. You could have a class competition, a partner activity, or whatever you think of to keep your students learning and engaged!
Great for a Social Studies/Math (Graphing) Connection!
