Columbus Day Online Lessons and Activities


Recently, there's been controversy around the celebration of Columbus Day. We say, Happy Columbus Day anyway! Did he or didn't he discover America? Well, he certainly did, but he wasnt't the first or even the second. Who really discovered America?






Christopher Columbus gets the credit for discovering America, but the Native Americans were already here. Amerigo Vespucci, America's namesake, was here first. So was Leif Erikson!





We've curated some lessons to help you decide for yourself. Who really discovered America?

Lora's Law #17: Most People Aren't as Dumb as They Act

Yum

Quotes about Success

A lot of smart people seem dumb. A lot of smart people feel dumb. The truth is, most people aren't as dumb as they act. Right? I mean, a lot of people always do their best and their best IS good enough. Other people, fool themselves to think that they are doing their best, but, in reality, they really don't care about the thing they are doing. It doesn't matter to them, it isn't as important to them as it is to someone else, and they just don't care. Then, they convince themselves that their best isn't good enough. Lora's Law #17 is a quote about mindset and success.

Lora's Law #16: You Shouldn't Get Back on the Horse


You know what they say, you should always get back on the horse. It is a good message. It promotes how important it is to keep trying. The more you try, the more likely you are to succeed. It is a saying. Does that make it true? I've literally fallen off of a horse, and I've literally gotten back on the horse. So, I am here to tell you, (figuratively and literally) you shouldn't always get back on the horse! That's right, sometimes the horse is stupid and it isn't worth the risk. The same applies to life. Lora's Law #16 is all about that. Get back on the horse quote to share. Enjoy!
