Columbus sailed with three ships, three ships, three ships,
Columbus sailed with three ships
Over the ocean blue.


Students sing while passing 3 laminated ships, each with a name of a ship. On the word “blue” (the first time) students stop passing. Each student holding a ship echoes the name of that ship when the teacher sings it.
