Last month, we subscribed to a neat service called Little Passports (http://littlepassports.com/). With Little Passports, the children get mail representing a different country every month (including information, pictures, and a souvenire). This month, the children will be getting a package about Brazil!
We wanted to use Little Passports in conjunction with our culture & geography work, so each month, we’ll be doing a home unit based on the next package from Little Passports. Each month, we will learn about:
-The geography & landmarks of the country
-The currency of the country
-The clothing, people, and jobs in the country
-The food (including cooking a meal from the country)
-The animals & plants
-The music, art, & literature
But it doesn’t come all at once of course! Gotta pace yourself. 😉 This week, I put out the South American puzzle, some 3 part cards on animals, plants, and landmarks, some instruments, books from our home library and our city’s library, and little animal figurines.
