This video is one of many that I found on this youtube channel called CC Cartoons. Although this video is from 1960, it illustrates the voyage of Christopher Columbus in a fun and entertaining way that caught my attention immediately! It isn’t a simple “sit down and listen to this information” type of video. It includes music and singing and is literally an educational cartoon that students will love! The channel itself has several videos that illustrate the travels of multiple european explorers. I would definitely check this out and use it as a tool in your classroom!
