We had a great time learning about Christopher Columbus this week! We did an activity each day this week to help us learn more about him. Our activities tied in nicely with our Community Helper theme. Most of the activities came from Kim Adsit's Hooray-for-Columbus-Day activity pack.
|We read the book 1492. This book is great for preschoolers and Kindergarteners because it really brings it down to their level.|
|We made our very own Christopher Columbus. I liked the book that I usually do to attach, so I used that instead of Kim's.|
|We learned about the ships that Columbus sailed on. Then we made our own individual Santa Maria ships. We are just beginning to label, so this was a great introductory activity.|
