Columbus Day Explorer Journals!

In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue and now we get a holiday.... Usually, we're not off school but this year it happened to fall during our Fall Break. Therefore, in honor of the holiday and being off school for Fall Break I thought I'd share with you some journal entries I've had my students complete in the past during our explorer unit. Feel free to grab a complete copy from my Dropbox here.

Here's a few of the questions I ask my students to think critically about after or during our unit:

Explorers

You can also use these questions as write arounds during explorer stations! They provide some great thinking and students generally have some great thoughts on each topic! I'm linking this post up with Diane from Fifth in the Middle's Social Studies Explorer Linky. Don't forget to check it out for more great explorer lessons!

Happy Columbus Day!

  2. I like these questions! The trend now seems to be discussing both sides of the story rather than proclaiming CC as a hero...
