I had to give you a sneak peek at the progress on the diy atlas cover that the boys designed as we use North Star Geography.
DIY Atlas – North Star Highschool Geography is Here!
I love the progress the boys have made on their atlas cover. Between getting ready for our big moving sale today and cleaning out their closets, they still have managed to come up with a design unique to their age. I thought too that they would be finished by now, but what do I know? They assure me you can’t rush perfection and because they are taking this quite seriously, they are working on their geography masterpieces in shifts.
I like the fact too that the ideas they have come up with so far shows their ages and perspective on the world in general. My oldest has a slight bent toward architecture that I didn’t even realize until this project. He chose a concept that may be more science fiction right now which is arcology, but I think it is way cool. He sure likes it. He still has more picture to add to it and then of course he can’t decide his lettering or title.
The bottom half of the picture shows Tiny’s idea of geography which is still relative to where he lives. So though he thinks somewhat globally by showing the world first, it all still comes down to where he lives or about him.
And then one more thing I have to tell you and that is yippee I am so excited because North Star Geography is finally released and ready for pre-orders.
We have done a couple of other hands-on projects that I have to show you next.
What do you think? Are you going to be using this with your kids this summer or next year?
Hugs and love ya,
