Adventure with a young sailor as he journeys to the New World with Christopher Columbus and his crew. Follow their dangerous journey as they struggle for survival in the high seas. Explore the elements of historical fiction, practice using quotation marks in dialog, recognize and apply subject-verb agreement, and practice identifying and using similies. Each unit contains both parent instruction pages and student activity sheets for ~3 weeks of daily instruction.
This unit is designed to be used in conjunction with Unit 2: Early Explorers, but can also be used as a stand alone literature unit.
