If you haven’t already, today is a great day to talk about this with your kids! Here is a free unit from the New York Fire Department.
October 9 Leif Erikson Day
  • Leif Erikson sailed to North American from Greenland around 1002 A.D. During his voyage he landed in a number of places, but  he made no maps of his journey, so documentation of his trip was difficult. It is believed he landed somewhere along the coast of New Foundland near Cape Cod.  According to records he was the first European to set foot on North American soil.
