It’s been a busy week, one that has had me running in many directions trying to get work done. Thankfully the weather has been fair, so I’m not battling ice and snow as well as a hectic schedule.
I am battling the urge to research explorers to North America. I knew Christopher Columbus didn’t discover a New World–he discovered an Old World–still, I wasn’t aware so many other explorers had made it here before the Vikings settled at L’Anse aux Meadows in 1000 AD.
In Social Studies, my home-schooled son and I are exploring these explorers, and stories ideas are pelting me like hail. I find myself wanting to search for more information on the people who came after the Asians crossed the land bridge into Alaska and…those who came before them. Who were the first humans on North American soil? Ah, we may never know.
