We spent Columbus Day, well, learning about Columbus. My boys were surprisingly interested in this part of history.
We began the day by watching an old cartoon on YouTube.
|Each of us, including me, made a hat similar to one Columbus may have worn.|
|We put together a map of the Columbus story.|
I have talked about these before, but I love these 3-d Maps from Scholastic.

|Over the summer, Costco had the Scholastic Monthly Idea books for cheap. We used the October book in our Columbus studies.|
|It was convenient that Columbus sailed with 3 ships, so each of my kids colored one ship. Mr. T especially was interested in which ship Columbus was on & which ship sank.|

As well as the activities already mentioned, the boys also wrote short stories & colored mosaic pictures.
The mosaic pics are from Lory's Page.
