The Nino, the Pinto, and the Sanda Marina

Ahhhh Columbus Day in First Grade!  What a fun but kind of meaningless day.  Though everyone knows that the story about Columbus "discovering" America is a bit shady, teachers all across this country feel an obligation to recount the story of our favorite Italian.  And why not?  He makes a really great looking paper bag puppet!

Here, for your enjoyment, are two accounts of the whole Christopher Columbus story.

(Disclaimer:  The following may or may not be actual facts.)

PS:
In case you are worried that this educator doesn't really know the names of the three ships...she does!
