Columbus Day Mini Unit

I am taking the Friday before Columbus Day off because my husband is coming home from DC that weekend :D Anyways, it's always difficult having a sub because I feel like I just throw busy work together. So I decided to make a few Columbus Day activities which then turned into a mini unit. It includes math, science, social studies, and ELA activities. I figure I will use these throughout the next couple of weeks in math centers and for homework then have the sub finish the unit up on Friday. You can download this unit here. It includes:

Sailboat tangram template
Tangram template
Tangram answer key
Bump- 2 dice edition

Capture Ye Gold math game
Need VS Want work mat
Need VS Want picture cards
Need VS Want magazine collage
Fill in the blank difficult version
Fill in the blank average version
Fill in the blank easier version
Fill in the blank answer key
Christopher Columbus word find
Sink or float experiment

3 writing prompts

I hope this makes teaching about Columbus Day easier for you :)
