This week we read an article in our Scholastic News called, "Goodbye, Columbus Day?". After reading this article we read about Christopher Columbus from both the persepective of Europeans and the perspective of the indigenous peoples who lived on the islands Columbus "discovered." We then discussed reasons people would say yes - we should continue to celebrate Columbus Day and reasons people would say we should not continue to celebrate Columbus Day. At the end, each student wrote about whether or not he/she thought we should celebrate Columbus day and needed to support that opinion with reasons and supporting details. Please check out this writing on our Kidblog page. Comments are welcome and appreciated!!
