Christopher Columbus

Some very good graphics are included in this informative presentation on the life of Christopher Columbus and the voyages he took. Among other things, students discover that Columus missed the chance to be the first European to view the Pacific Ocean when he declined an invitation to cross the Isthmus of Panama. Great to use for Columbus Day or a review.
