Columbus Day

I was planning on posting this weekend about all of our upcoming projects in October...spiders, bats, pumpkins and all...but, I forgot everything on my desk at school! Don't you love when that happens? So that post will just have to wait :)  Instead, I will share one of our Columbus Day activities with you.

It is sort of a take on a ship in a bottle.  I let the kids be creative and design their own flags. Then we add our poem onto the back.  The poem is below:


Enjoy!

  6. We do something similar, but we add plastic wrap over the top to make the "glass" of the bottle. Thanks for the poem - love it!
