For Geography, we will be spending time working on N,S,E,W which Christian already has a pretty good concept because he loves hiking with his compass! We did an orienteering activity last year too and I think we may do a few more this year! The other main focus in geography is the Great Lakes while reading Paddle to the Sea. I made my own coloring page by tracing the outline of the area. I’ll probably print off a few of these through the year and maybe eventually he can even “blob” a map of the area!
I’m also printing this map of the lakes:
As well as the States and Capitols:
This map for 50 Famous Stories:
For Viking Tales:
And an outline of the world:
I’m looking forward to our school year! I’ll also have the USA map on our dining room wall once I’ve finished painting!
