Need a Last Minute Columbus Day Activity?

Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas Columbus Day Resources at TeacherspayTeachers.

Monday is Columbus Day.
Columbus Day is a federal holiday celebrated on the second Monday of October every year. It is generally accepted that Christopher Columbus was the first European to discover the New World, later named, The Americas. Who doesn't remember learning, "In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue..." in school? Columbus arrived on October 12, 1492, and even with it being a federal holiday, many schools will be in session on Monday. I've put together a few resources for you to have a little mini-lesson this week or when you get back next week if you do have Monday off from school!
A Columbus Day Song for Your Students
 My favorite, Kermit the Frog with a News Flash!

So, why not add a little more fun to your day?
I've created a freebie for third and fourth grade, Mixed Multiplication and Division Center Game with a Christopher Columbus theme. Our school days are getting shorter and shorter, our standards list is getting longer and longer, so here's a cute little freebie for your Monday to incorporate a little Social Studies into your Math Center.
