Lately the kids have been really excited about drawing maps. We got out the APH light box (perk of having adaptive equipment around!) and traced a map that I printed off Google.
Then they labeled each country.
(Curly always smiles and poses for the camera!)
Lately, the kids and I have really enjoyed playing games on Free Rice. One of the games is identification of countries on a map. I'm proud to say I know now which country is Turkmenistan, as well as where Ghana is. Little Mister is even better than I am!
The cool thing about Free Rice is that the learning is combined with feeding hungry people around the world. It means a little more when you study countries around the world if we can help a few families while we're at it. :)
