This last week was our first week of our new adventure. We will be learning things in units, kind of like semesters. For our first unit we are talking about American History. We first started with the famous explorer Christopher Columbus. Every day we worked our way through his life and what he accomplished. We began with when he was born and what he did with his family and how he became interested in traveling. We then moved to talk about his many travels and his marriage and son, To his great expedition to the america's. We learned about his ship and the many parts of it, and talked about his route by looking at a map.
The kids made a replica of Columbus ship
Later in the week the kids were told to put a skit together in 15 min. of what we talked about for the week. They had a blast, and I had a blast watching them.
