Usually I can sneak in a little holiday texts and activities, although my time is limited. With that in mind, I developed a short, mini unit for Christopher Columbus to use with my intervention groups. For my firsties, we are reading the Christopher Columbus book that is part of Scholastic's "Very First Biographies" series ( I LOVE this book set!). We will do this as a one day activity with shared reading, identifying main ideas and details and reflecting on our learning.
The packet is simple and direct with no cute craftivities, which I rarely have time for! :(
I also included a cause-effect graphic organizer I designed for a second grade teacher in my building who is using a different text with her students and is wrapping up her cause-effect lessons.

If you're looking for something short and sweet that focuses on a general understanding of Columbus' importance, click here to see the listing.

Have a great night!
