This was one of those super hands on kind of days! Continuing on with geography in Moving Beyond the Page, we started out talking about contour maps and made one of a sweet potato.
Then we moved on to relief maps (they need to dry and then be painted). The kids picked their "favorite" countries. Joseph chose Greece, Libby chose Germany and Caroline opted for Japan instead of China due to size. ;)
Then we talked about how mountains are measured and tried it out on a tree down at the park (mountains are a little scarce in these parts).
And, Joseph is apparently Captain Shanghai today. :p
