This summer i wanted to do some world culture / geography lessons so that was our summer activity. I looked around for curriculum i could use with my pre-k/Ker & the 2cd grader and ended up buying Expedition Earth ( http://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com/world-geography )
which i wish i had found earlier! but they have lot of lot of printable so i know i will be back to their site in the future. :)
We started off in mexico. we classified some mexican animals, learned about children in mexico, and looked up a lot of info about Geckos. the smallest gecko measuring about 3 inches and the longest 12!
Next we flew to china. Learned about the Chinese new year and did a little origami.
We also dyed some silk with kolaid
Next was India, elephants, henna, + hot weather!
Lochs own sari for the lesson. :) He really liked that you tuck it in your underwear. *sigh* boys...
And finished up with England.
