Christopher Columbus Coloring Pages
The kids are going to enjoy coloring in these Christopher Columbus coloring pages and trying to match the timeline with the pictures.
Print out the 4 coloring pages below, it will print out on four full pages. Make sure to check the printer settings.
You can of course print this on normal printer paper, but with all of our crafts, they always look better on cardstock.
Cut out all of the words and the pictures, I like to use a paper cutter as it is more accurate. However, scissors will work too.
Ask the children to color in all of the images first, there are 6 different pictures to color in.
- Christopher Columbus
- Queen Isabella
- Palm trees
- King Ferdinand of Spain
- Sailing ships x 2
When the pictures are colored in, give the children the timeline words. If they want to they can color in the words too.
The children then need to match the words with the picture they have colored in.
Christopher Columbus set sail in August 1492.
He headed for Asia
