  1. These are incredible stories and resources. I plan on using some of these with my students when I go back to school. Thank you

    I’m 70 years old and was taught in school to respect Christopher Columbus. He saw how ships moved out to sea in a way that made him think the earth was round not flat. He made it his mission to prove it. I don’t know what schools are teaching now. I’m glad that his journals were preserved and after hearing his own words, I believe he was more of a Christian missionary than an explorer.
