Columbus Day Reading Preschool Lesson Plan

Kick off your Columbus Day lessons by getting to know a little bit more about the explorer behind the day – Christopher Columbus! We love this chart Erin over at Eberhart's Explorers and her kinders completed; first recording what they knew about Columbus – using the clip art picture as a reference to determine what may be true since many of them may not have encountered the historical figure – and then returning to record what they'd learned after exploring both a video and audio book about Christopher Columbus. The best part is Erin provides her chart labels for free so you can create your own chart with your preschoolers!
