Christopher Columbus Lapbook and Link Up

We originally did this lapbook Nov. 18, 2012. I have since added some additional links to complete the lapbook, correct some picture placement and added a link up, all in time for Columbus Day.

Tomorrow (11/19/12) we are going to tour replicas of The Nina and Pinta. So today we did a mini lesson and lapbook on Columbus. Since Owlet and Poppy had attended public school for several years I did not feel there was a real need to study Columbus back in October. Yang and I went over some of the common basic facts about Columbus, read a little poem about Columbus, copied some common words associated with Columbus and his voyage to the New World and watched some videos.

Poppy's Lapbook

For Poppy's lapbook I did a lot of piecing together of things I found online. Since I used lots of different lapbooks, unit studies and journaling pages, I created a pinterest board to go along with our lapbooks we made. ENJOY!

Most think Columbus took one voyage and ended up in the Americas. He actually made 4 trips across the Atlantic Ocean from Spain - 1492, 1493, 1498 and 1502, and as you see he actually landed in several different islands in the present day Caribbean.
