With that in mind, I soured the web for some fun, interesting Columbus Day activities to include in your homeschool program or as a supplement to school.
Here are my favorites:
Columbus Day Race from Education.com
This next one is awesome from Busy Teachers Café
There are so many activities to choose from. Since they span almost all subject areas, I'm thinking this would work great as a Unit Study.
Apples for the Teacher has a nice timeline of the events surrounding Columbus' adventure.
Enchanted Homeschooling has some neat ideas!
Here are some things we'll be doing besides reading about Columbus' travels. We will be working on a maze, doing a word search, and putting Columbus Day words in alphabetical order. These are all ideas that you can do yourself and will be lots of fun for the kids.
Check out what we did last year HERE! and Happy Homeschooling Adventures!
