Wanting to teach your bigger kids some of the gory details about Columbus' history? Wanting to throw in some context clues and paragraph writing practice as well?
This passage talks about the controversy of Christopher Columbus, and his horrible, violent treatment of the Native Americans. Please peek at the thumbnail before purchasing - I've included details about how he cut off hands and noses to govern the Lucayans. While my fifth graders are going to love the gore, please keep your own students in mind.
