The past couple weeks, we’ve been learning about South Korea. Now, the kids already have a little knowledge about the country due to the fact they have been doing Tang Soo Do, a Korean martial art, for almost two years. So, they already know how to count in Korean, as well as name body parts and describe the parts of the South Korean flag. They really enjoyed getting to know more about a country that they had a connection to!
Jedi coloring his South Korean flag. He also completed his map of South Korea and found it on the globe and world map. Last week, I posted about some of the other things Jedi did for South Korea, including researching animals from the country.
Monkey using the "Children of Asia" work. Jedi & Monkey also played a lot of ka-wi-ba-wi-bo (rock, paper, scissors...popular in South Korea just like it is in America!)
No unit on South Korea would be complete without some Korean BBQ!
And of course, the kids and I did plenty of Tang Soo Do! Here's an older picture of Monkey, Jedi, and I with Grandmaster Shin at a regional Tang Soo Do competition.
