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!
Victoria Falls was another stop. Gabe loved that everything was blue when he put it over his face.
Both of them made waterfall rings.
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.
We visited the Great pyramid, and made camel puppets.
Almost every day Ethan is using the coloring pages.
We made little books and read them in English, and also in Spanish.
We used our story telling props and had the kids find each of the landmarks I called out while reading our story.
Another great book from Mother Goose Time Curriculum, Wonder Around the World (aff. link) Their books are on Amazon for anyone who is interested in them.
For St. Basil’s Cathedral the kids cut out pieces to make their own cathedral.
Each of the boys made a postcard of their favorite place we visited. Gabe choose Machu Picchu.
Ethan’s favorite place we visited was the Great Pyramid.
For the Leaning Tower of Pisa the kids made towers using noodles and toothpicks.
We have had such a wonderful time exploring the world using our Mother Goose Time curriculum, we are looking forward to starting our space unit next week!
Linking up with these great link parties, stop over for other great ideas for kids.
