About Christopher Columbus
In 1492, everyone thought Columbus was crazy to sail west into the unknown! Learn about his adventures across the Atlantic on ships Santa Maria, Pinta and Niña. Share in the crew's struggle with provisions, celebrate as they eventually catch sight of dry land and meet the natives of San Salvador as they drum, dance and trade with the visitors.
Includes five fantastic songs, recorder and drum music, four pages of cross-curricular ideas and extension work, and a class assembly script. There’s even the opportunity to choreograph a native dance to perform alongside the drum music.
We’ve also made it easy to support your curriculum requirements by providing an additional song Great Explorers, which compares land explorer Christopher Columbus with space explorer Neil Armstrong! Check out our new Class Assembly Neil Armstrong for more great resources.
Christopher Columbus includes Words on Screen™ Original songs on its enhanced CD.
