Preschool Theme ~ Landmarks Around The World

This month we have been taking a trip around the world. The first 2 weeks the kids learned about travel tools and items found in a world market, the last 2 weeks they have learned about different landmarks from around the world. Since we have had some sick kiddos there were some days we did not do school, so what I do with the missed days is combine a couple days into 1 day.

For the Ayers rock day the kids used red sand to make the rock. They loved this, and Ethan used the extra sand that was left over for his Ayers Rock FREE printable page found on Mother Goose Time website.

The boys LOVED making the cable cars. We made a short line for both of the cable cars during our lesson. Later that night the boys wanted their own bigger cable line, so we made them from one end of their room to the other. They have played with it many times since we made them!

We played a game of world matching. Mother Goose time added wonderful real life images to the cards, some of them were landmarks others were different people from around the world. We talked about where the landmarks were found and where each of the people were from.
