Lydia and I found a great link on YouTube that we watched to go along with our Scholastic News Magazine on Columbus Day.
We watched a video on Christopher Columbus that is part of the Animated Hero Classics. The full video is available free of charge. It was very basic and perfect for early elementary age. She enjoyed it, and I did too because of it's simplicity for kids.
If you want the link, just follow here to YouTube. They have several other videos available!!
