Class Name: Literature – Grade 1/2
This week’s focus: Thailand
Continue to look at the many icons describing Thailand on Page 54- 55 on the Maps book. Which animals would you be excited to encounter? Which foods would you be inclined to eat? Which foods would you NOT be eating? Can you find the plate of snacks made of insects?
Which statues are you curious about? Can you find the capital city of Bangkok? Do you remember any of the names of countries that bordered Thailand?
This week we will be reading the book, The Lotus Seed. In advance of class, look up the Lotus flower, so you have a picture in your mind of what it looks like, or even try drawing it in your adventure journal ahead of our class.
