Columbus Sailed The Ocean Blue

Happy October. Here is a quick sneak peek of my Christopher Columbus Thematic Unit.

This unit has many components making it a cross curricular thematic unit. Tying all subjects together in one fun theme makes the learning so that much better and so much more fun.

One of the many activities that is great to do for any unit, is using graphic organizers. Teaching our students to organize their thoughts is a vital skill that they will need throughout life.

One of my favorite activities to do during any unit is a labeling activity. This unit includes colored and black and white posters for Christopher Columbus as well as one of the ships. 3 differentiated student activities are included for each of the topics.

My thematic units include individual student graphic organizers as well as chart parts to complete the organizers as a class as well as vocabulary cards that feature real life pictures to display during the unit.

Columbus Vocabulary

Students will have a chance to journal about Christopher Columbus’ travels in their very own journal. They will use their senses and all they have learned about Columbus to complete the journal pages.

The Classroom “Big” books and student readers both read the same. The full colored version of the book includes real life pictures to make learning more fun. The student readers are in black and white to allow your students to follow along and then take the story home with them.

This unit is also topped off with a fun craft to complete.
