Friday Fun Lessons - Our Geography Course

I wrote to you last summer about our Geography course this year.  Using a freebie from the craft store and one of my favorite map resources, we have a great little country study going.  

Last week we studied India.  The projects for this country study were so cool, I just had to share.  I think when you look at them, you can really see the influence of the country on the projects:
The black papers are Crayola Color Wonder pages.  The boys did drawings of Peacocks as per the instructions.  You can't really see the detail, but they came out so neat.  And the yellow hands are the boys "henna hands."  For each country we study, the boys make a pin and pin it to a baseball cap.  The elephants are made of fun foam and the boys embellished them with sequins, beads, puff paint, and jingle bells.  

If the shortest month of the year is feeling a bit long in your homeschool, you can find instructions and ideas for your own country studies here.  We have improvised on some supplies to keep the cost a little lower, but all-in-all, it has been fun and a great learning experience!  Let me know if you choose to give it a try.
