Voyage with Christopher Columbus | Finish the Story
A fun and whimsical cross-curricular activity that your students will love. Students will read a ‘going back in time’ narrative about a young man finding himself aboard a ship with Christopher Columbus. After reading the passage and answering a few ‘get you thinking’ questions, students will be asked to ‘complete the story’. Ask students not only to use their knowledge and skills of writing but also their knowledge about Columbus, the time, the passage to the ‘New World’, living conditions, etc. You may also ask them to do a little research to find out more about the subject before completing the story.
Cross-curricular and engaging, this resource will have students use a variety of Language Arts skills and activities as they learn about this important woman of history! Earhart was an American aviation pioneer. She was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences, and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots!
Use these informational articles to as they gain greater knowledge of and within the various regions of the country.
