We started with our lapbooks as always. Two of my fabulous Mom's came up with a brilliant idea of putting all the answers onto peel-n-stick labels to help expedite writing/filling in blanks.We did a project today on the 7 tallest Mountains from our memory work for this week. I cut up some old boxes I had out in the garage and made long rectangles big enough to hold the models and the information for each model that they would be gluing down in front of them. I made a document with the 7 mountains that had the name, country, elevation and map. I also added a map of the world for them to note where each mountain was in the world view and a label that asks the memory work question. I next took egg cartons and cut out the "mountains" from each of them so each kids had at least 7. I gathered newspaper, tape, hot glue gun and paints/paint brushes. Then we let the kids glue and create their mountains model.
We ended our day with a game of "review war"! Thanks to the fabulous Mrs. April!
