We started our new unit today! Explorers and Pirates 1400AD - 1600AD. We chatted a little about Marco Polo and how he inspired so many, including Christopher Columbus. And then we did a mini unit on 1492 and Christopher Columbus. Monkey Girl asked if King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella were the Ferdinand and Isabella monarchs who were parents to Katherine of Aaragon and she was utterly thrilled to learn that they were.
A choice of chalk pastels or oil pastels to colour Christopher Columbus' three ships. They created their own designs.
Matching pairs game and puzzles for my darling son.
