What do you remember about Christopher Columbus? Do you remember what grade you were in when you learned about him?
Tristan's Kindergarten class has been learning about Christopher Columbus this week. It has been kind of nice to have a refresher and learn a couple of things. I was in either 1st or 2nd grade when we learned about Christopher Columbus. I asked my niece who is in the 4th grade if she knew who Christopher Columbus was and she says in a sassy voice "Yeah, he was a old president"!. Um... no. She was homeschooled her Kindergarten year using the same program we are using so she should or learned about him. She had a half of a year in Public schools and has been in a private school since.
Is Christopher Columbus something kids should learn about and know about?
