Columbus Day Creative Writing Prompts for Kids

I can’t believe how fast this year is flying by – which is good because this hasn’t been the greatest year for us and we’re looking forward to it being over! Only 3 1/2 months until next year – and less than one month until Columbus Day! I’m still having a hard time believing summer is over – thinking about October holidays is really messing with my head!

It seems that I can’t post any Columbus Day content without a little controversy from our readers, though. And I can understand why some people aren’t too thrilled with a national holiday dedicated to a man who both hurt and helped a lot of people as he discovered our nation. In fact, even his place as our ‘discoverer’ is controversial with some of you! I get it. But regardless, many teachers, educators and schools feel that no matter what others think about Christopher Columbus, he is an important figure in our history. I think we can all agree on that.

These three Columbus Day themed story starters get your students to think creatively about alternate historical story lines: inviting the children to think about being a part of discovering America, having fun with the idea of the world being flat, and what Columbus would have found if he came to America 1000 years later than 1492 – I’d really love to read what your students come up with for that last one!
