All three girls have a big interest in “The Blue Planet” as they persist in calling The Earth. So – weh ave a Globe, several varieties of Atlas, a heap of National Geographic, the Sonlight Maps and Globes book and i need to think of some fabulous ideas to inspire them to learn about their world, in a general sense rather than specific areas. Hm..
Geological make up of the Earth
Names of the Oceans and Continents
Orbit and place in Solar System
Equator/Hemispheres/Latitude and Longitude
Concept of North and South and the Poles
Types of map
Places the are interested in
Useful stuff in the Usborne Pocket Encyclopedia for this
Also – Blue Pocket Scientist
Fairly sure there is some Webland Stuff
Oh – and MuddlePuddle has a Space page too of courseAnd one on the Solar System too!
Might be interesting to do a lapbook since we’ve already done a mini scrapbook.
