Christopher Columbus Unit Study

In this unit study we learned about Christopher Columbus and his journey to America. We also learned a little geography and about some different landforms including peninsulas, islands, and mountains. This unit study is geared for elementary students and has 7 days worth of lessons. I did this unit study with my 1st grader and recommend it for Kindergarten- 3rd grade.

Christopher Columbus Book List
Books can be read by the child or by the parent to the child, depending on the child's reading level. I don't think that a child is ever too old to be read to.

Books I used in the lessons...
Columbus by Ingri and Edgar Parin D'Aulaire
Hands on History Christopher Columbus by Mary Tucker.
In 1492 by Jean Marzollo

Other age appropriate books...
Christopher Columbus by Lisa Wade McCormick
Christopher Cloumbus by Stephen Krensky
What's So Great About Christopher Columbus by Amie Jane Leavitt
Christopher Columbus by Marion Dane Bauer
You Wouldn't Want to Sail With Christopher Columbus! By Fiona Macdonald
