It has been such a help to me because for some reason I found geography daunting and didn't know where to start! Now our whole family is enjoying it, and I couldn't be happier.
One of the fun things we got to do this week was to make a creation lapbook:
Both of my kids made these, but for Alex I cut everything out in advance so that he would just participate in the coloring, circling the letters of his name, gluing, etc. It made it much easier.
Another fun thing we did was to make a paper mache globe. I found a website with lots of fun ideas I might use later and good tips for paper mache.
Another thing that we did was start our display boards for our animals. We made our Animals of North America first, since the animals we are studying for our Little House in the Big Woods curriculum can go on here.
(So far our bears and wolves are on here)
So that was our week of geography. Next week we plan to study Antarctica because it goes so well with the nice snowy weather we are having. What about your family? Any fun ideas to share?
