Friday Funny !

I was teaching a lesson today to one of my first grade classrooms. I had just finished reading a book about Christopher Columbus. I aksed the class to tell me what new facts they were adding to their schema.

A boy said " Columbus met Indians in the new world."

I asked, " How did Columbus know they were Indians?"

He replied " They were dressed like Indians."

I could not help but crack up! The text of the book has said "Columbus thought he was in the Indies, so he called the people he met in the new land Indians." LOL !

Happy Reading!
