My daughter chose the continent of Europe as our focus continent for the month of September. She picked it out on her puzzle globe. We had started studying a new country each week before summer as summer approached I decided to take a break and start back up during school time.
Week 8: Belgium
Week 9: Croatia
Week 10: Iceland
Week 11: Sweden
Last week we studied Croatia week 9, in a few days I’ll share what we learned about Iceland for week 10.
I start off the week by reading the country sheet filled of simple facts about the country. I keep it simple because my kids are young, and my oldest has school work to get done.
I had difficulty finding child level videos to introduce my children to the Croatian language therefore I don’t have a link to share. My oldest daughter is interested in castles and since Croatia is known for Castles I made several simple reading coloring pages with a castle theme.
The puzzle globe we have is neat and both my daughters enjoy taking off the pieces and making a mess of it, that’s the issue though since it’s more of a toy concept it’s sometimes hard to follow as far as getting the information of continents and where countries are located to sink into my kids heads. Therefore I recently bought a set of two posters one being a map of the world, and the other a map of the United States because that’s where we live. I hung them on our living room wall with velcro command strips that we can take them down whenever we want to look at and talk about continents and countries.
