COLUMBUS AND THE GREAT DISCOVERY
LEARN OUR HISTORY
Last month I introduced you to the company Learn Our History co-founded by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.
Learn Our History is an animated dvd series that teaches all about history. These are perfect for any age group. My six year old is really enjoying them and so am I.
Learn Our History is about a group of time traveling kids called the "Time Travelers" who get to experience history in the making. There are over 20 dvd dvd's in this program. Each topic comes with downloadable curriculum supplements for each topic including discussion questions, timelines, maps, games, and more!
This month we had the opportunity to watch "Columbus and the Great Discovery". It's the perfect time to study since we celebrate Columbus Day on October 14, 2013. Discover in the beginning the reasons why Columbus wanted to take on such a dangerous journey. Did King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain initially give him supplies and ships for his journey? Follow Columbus and the Time Travelers as they set sail with three ships from Spain into basically unchartered territory. The voyage was long however Columbus and his crew finally landed on a beautiful tropical island that he claimed for Spain. This is the beginning of new traditions, customs, religion, and cultures throughout the New World.
After watching "Columbus and the Great Discovery" I was able to download prepared lesson plans from the LOH website. Included were great discussion questions, a timeline, and a fun game to play involving ships and islands. I really appreciated this material and I liked listening to my son talk about what he learned in the dvd. He loved the game!
"Batman" got really into the whole theme of Columbus and asked if we could make a replica of the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria. I guess I will be headed out for supplies later on for this. I love his enthusiasm though!
One of the things I like most about Learn Our History is the convenience! Play the series on your computer, ipad, iphone, ipod, or any internet-connected device that's equipped with a web browser.
