Columbus Day Fun
What a fun day we had learning about Christopher Columbus with our SMARTboard lesson and movie. We made pencil toppers from Oriental Trading and had spice cake cupcakes. Why spice cake? Because, Columbus was looking for riches, spices, and slaves to bring back to the king and queen of Spain. And, anyway, they are delicious! We made a craft to remind us of Columbus' ship, the Santa Maria, that was shipwrecked on the voyage home after discovering San Salvador. We glittered the water and the kids thought it looked like real water.
