Today we learned about Christopher Columbus.
We read this book:
and had a really great discussion about this explorer.
Here are some of the Columbus facts we shared with our friends at the end of the day:
Christopher Columbus was a sailor. (Evan)
When Columbus landed in America - he thought that he was in Asia! (a fact that Mariana thought was hysterical!!)
He had to ask for money for his trip. (Vincent)
The Queen finally gave him money, 3 ships, and a crew for his trip. (Sofia)
A crew is a group of helpers on the boat. (Sam)
The three ships were the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria. (several students)
