christopher columbus facts for kids - Who Really
Who Really Discovered America?: Unraveling the Mystery & Solving the Puzzle (Kaleidoscope Kids Books (Williamson Publishing))
This title is suitable for ages 9 to 12 years. Lifelong learning happens when kids themselves assess information, produce a visual work to 'cement' this understanding, voice their opinions, and draw their own conclusions, guided by the facts as they are known today. And that's what really does happen in this book. Facts, myths, evidence, beliefs? Kids discover firsthand within their own experiences, thoughts, imaginations, and belief systems how easy it is for hearsay to turn into fact, and how often we confuse beliefs and facts. Who writes the history books? Kids are encouraged to question what they read, to explore contradictions, and to discover how it is that ancient history can be so 'alive' and still changing today. Columbus? Making it real! Kids make a Viking ship and an amazing sod house, a Kon Tiki-style raft, petroglyphs and cave paintings; they trace ocean currents with coloured water; decipher ancient language links; write a Viking saga; build a Native American-style mini-mound city; and weigh evidence pro and con. Hart and Mantell lead kids on a wonderful, enlightening journey about truth, brotherhood, humanity, wealth, freedom, and discovery. But the best gift is that the kids who use this book will know that Hart and Mantell trust them unconditionally to draw their own honest conclusions. This title is suitable for ages 8 - 14.
Let it be known to the entire world: Christopher Columbus Day is not celebrated in the pimp household. Mostly because Christopher Columbus is a fucking cocksucker. We don't celebrate cocksuckers at

Did you have off from school or work yesterday? Pretty rad when that happens, isn’t it? In this case it’s especially super duper wacky because the holiday that gave you that day off is a celebration of violence, murder, and genocide.
Christopher Columbus Day in America was celebrated yesterday. I’m not a very politically correct kind of pimp, but this is a joke. Christopher Columbus Day? How is this still a federal holiday after all these years??? Gone are the days when it was okay to be racist, advertising a cigarette on TV, or even touring the country with a circus full of freaks. Totally politically incorrect, I’d even bet all those things are against the law. We have got very conservative and “proper” in the past 20-30 years.
So someone. PLEASE in the name of PIMP, tell me how in the fucking nutsack Christopher motherfuckin’ Columbus Day didn’t get annexed somewhere during our new found righteousness?
First of all, the dude didn’t discover shit. Somehow no one seems to understand the concept that the European white man history isn’t the only history of this planet. Columbus discovered America for his own people. However there was already a whole different kind of people living here scattered throughout the continent commonly referred to as Native Americans. And they had been living here for thousands of years. Much longer than the 600 years we’ve been here.
But get this, ready? They actually have history too. Yeah, swear to god! History didn’t pick up in 1492 when Columbus got here and prepared the massive takeover. We aren’t taught Native American history. And if we are, it’s post 1492 with Cowboys and Indian fictional bullshit stories and shit. They had history before 1492 dude. Yeah, very poor record was kept of it, mostly destroyed I bet when we killed them all.
Regardless, you aren’t taught any of it because our schools don’t give a shit. I mean does it make any sense to learn the history of the millions of people who your Columbus fuckface completely eradicated anyway? We already proved our doctrine is that we’re the most important people on this planet, right? It’s nauseating.
Most people are very unaware of the fact that Native Americans are BY FAR the most fucked up minority group in America on almost every single chart you can find. They mostly aren’t even listed in studies, you have to dig deep to see the facts. Black people, Hispanic people, Asian people, any minority group doesn’t even begin to rival Native Americans in poverty, crime, drug addiction, teenage pregnancy, I could go on and on.
Anyway, back to my point. Christopher Columbus Day? Seriously? Lose the fucking holiday in celebration of the white mans elitist murdering ways. Let’s not glorify this shit any more? The damage is done. Let’s not elevate it more every single October with this stupid fuck holiday. It’s like a slap in the face to anyone left from the race of people that cocksucker helped paved the way to kill. I’m embarrassed for America every year I see it on the calendar.
You might as well have Hitler Day while we’re at it? Stalin Day? Kim Jong Day? Saddam Day? Fuckmeintheass Day?
Okay seriously. My suggestion? Lose genocide day and gain a new holiday. And that would be…
Someone step up in the government and lose Christopher Columbus day. Do it you fuckfaces. Do it. DO IT!
Thank you in advance.

Christopher Columbus (1451-1506), Italian-born Spanish navigator who sailed west across the Atlantic Ocean in search of a route to Asia but achieved fame by making landfall in the Americas instead.
While on a voyage for Spain in search of a direct sea route from Europe to Asia, Christopher Columbus unintentionally encountered the Americas. However, in four separate voyages to the Caribbean from 1492 to 1504, he remained convinced that he had found the lands that Marco Polo reached in his overland travels to China at the end of the 13th century. To Columbus it was only a matter of time before a passage was found through the Caribbean islands to the fabled cities of Asia.
Columbus was not the first European to reach the Americas—Vikings from Scandinavia had briefly settled on the North American coast, in what is now Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, in the late 10th or early 11th century. However, Columbus’s explorations had a profound impact on the world. They led directly to the opening of the western hemisphere to European colonization; to large-scale exchanges of plants, animals, cultures, and ideas between the two worlds; and, on a darker note, to the deaths of millions of indigenous American peoples from war, forced labor, and disease.
II Europe in the Time of Columbus
Understanding Christopher Columbus is difficult without understanding the world into which he was born. The 15th century was a century of change, and many events that occurred during that time profoundly affected European society. Many of these events were driven by the centuries-long conflict between Christians and Muslims, followers of the religion known as Islam.
