I know that all of you enjoyed our unit on Columbus and his explorations of America.  I have created this home page for you to review the simple facts that we have studied as well as the name of the book that we read so that you can review.  I am also in the process of creating a quiz and a game to help you review this material.
The book we read was:
    Three Ships For Columbus  by Eve Spencer
The materials we covered were the following facts:
    Columbus was from Spain and asked the King and Queen of Spain for seven years for permission to sail.
    Columbus sailed on three ships: The Nina, The Pinta, and the Santa Maria.
    Columbus believed that he had found the Indies when he landed in America.
    The journey for Columbus and his men was a very long, hard journey.
