LKS2 History - Christopher Columbus Reading Comprehension & Biography Bundle

Two great activities that would span five lessons about the life of the man responsible for the discovery of the Americas, Christopher Columbus. The unit looks into his early life, his voyages west to the Americas, and his death and legacy afterwards. The resources are perfect for students in Year 3 or Year 4 who are learning about Explorers.

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!

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.
