UKS2 History - Bundle of Activities about Christopher Columbus

Two great activities that would span five lessons about the life of the man responsible for the discovery of the Americas, Christopher Columbus.

NO PREP is needed!

Firstly, there is a reading comprehension activity - children need to read through an informational text, and then answer comprehension and grammar questions, before completing an extension activity.

Secondly, there is a biography writing unit. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each.

Good luck, I hope you get some great results!

If you would like an example of the close reading activity this please look at my example Macbeth Activity 5th & 6th Grade Close Reading Activity.

We specialize in play scripts, we have a William Shakespeare collection with Richard III, Macbeth and Hamlet. We also have a good selection of Christmas play scripts including Elf, The Santa Clause and A Christmas Carol.
