As students learn the history of Christopher Columbus' journey this resource will help to visually see the journey & the amount of time it took his crew to travel across the Atlantic.

Students will:

  • Use latitude & longitude coordinates to map the exact route of Columbus & his crew
  • Use the dates to calculate the number of days each stretch of the journey lasted
  • See the exact spot of where Columbus landed to lead to a discussion of what land he claimed to discover & the land he was attempting to discover

**There is not a map with coordinates included in this resource, however there are several free maps on Teachers Pay Teachers.

**Another option would be to use Google Maps or Google Tour Builder with the coordinates
