Columbus Day

To celebrate Columbus Day, we made Columbus' three ships - the Niña, Pinta, and Santa Maria.

I gave each student a long piece of light blue construction paper and had them draw waves with a blue crayon and clouds with a white crayon.

I painted their hands (one hand three separate times) with brown paint. Once dry, we took small squares of paper and glued them on to make sails.

The students also wrote the names of the ships so they could remember when they told their parents.
