Columbus Sailed with Three Ships

Lyrics

(Composer unknown)

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

Game

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.

  1. I always like singing this song. It is just such a sweet and easy song that fits well in kids’ voices – and mine, too! Thanks for reminding me to use it this year!
