I just wanted to remind you before I move on with our unit study that my site now has over 30 lapbooks.
South America Colorful Map
Now that I got Monday morning business out of the way, I wanted to share the next part to our South America unit study that we are on right now, which is a map.
We have just been using our atlases and books from the library on this unit study and started off by locating the countries and landforms of South America.
We love doing the salt dough map, but this paper printable map I created also gives us a place to jot down other landforms, the capitals and even natural resources. Plus, we can stick this baby in our lapbook to come back and study too.
I have 2 maps or choices like I always try to do. One is labeled with the countries for our sweet little ones that can’t write yet and sweet big ones that don’t want to ..tee hee hee (Ok, sometimes you just don’t need tons of writing to try to make it fun) and then I have one that is not labeled, which is the one pictured above. As always, you decide what is best for your brood.
I have some websites and key vocabulary words and of course some more ideas for hands-on coming up on this unit study too.
It’s been too long since I have shared an inspirational quote. I received a book, a gift from a dear homeschooling mom which has 365 quotes in it and I read one quickly every morning. It like a mini-energy vitamin for the day because it sets my mind on fire. Here is one I heart today:
“If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.”
John D. Rockefeller
So true! Isn’t that what we are doing today?
Grab the rest of the unit study and fun hands-on ideas below!
Hugs and you know I love ya,
