CLARKS GREEN — It’s been over 500 years since Christopher Columbus sailed the seas in search of the New World. Recently, however, he appeared in a third and fourth-grade classroom at a local school.

Local historian Kenn Anderson Sr., of Scranton played the famous explorer, arriving at Abington Christian Academy in full 15th-century dress regalia and with props. In addition to bringing props and gadgets that students were able to handle and try, Anderson offered both well-known and lesser-known facts about the explorer.
