Celebrate Christopher Columbus Day the interactive way with these online resources!

1.       Primary students can listen to a simple illustrated story to learn the basic narrative of Christopher Columbus and his journey.

2.       Intermediate students can learn about the life of Christopher Columbus and his journey across the Atlantic with this more detailed illustrated biography.  Be sure to click on the highlighted items in the illustrations to view artifacts and learn specific facts about the voyage.  Then, challenge your students with the quiz to test their knowledge.

3.       Have your students design a character. (Don’t’ be surprised if it looks like you when they are finished!)  Then, challenge your students to answer questions about Christopher Columbus correctly to make their character walk the plank!
