Countries in Asia touched on and prayed for:
United States touched on:
Alabama (Read A is for Alabama for my husband's sake)
Bibleless People: the Akebu of Togo * (From Akebu to Zapotec - a Book of Bibleless Peoples)
Geographical Landforms learned:
* from Geography from A to Z by Jack Knowlton - Thanks to the Muse Family for sending this book to us and enriching our school life!!!
Also Read "Me on the Map by Joan Sweeney" Sent by the Muse Family as well to get a grasp of the big picture of continent, country, state, city, street, house, me....
Sang this song that Kari B taught us while pointing to the appropriate continent:
There are seven continents on the earth and they have names, O
Australia and Antartica!
Sung to the tune of BINGO
We then watched a Diego show on Armadillo's - the girls have had a fascination with Armadillos of late.
That's just a snippet of what happened in our classroom yesterday amidst all the unpacking of our new nest. Feel free to share your lesson plans with me!
