Sing the continent song this week while you point them out on pages 4-5 of the Map book.
We are still in the continent of Asia but traveling this week to yet another large country – India. Can you use the Table of Contents at the front of the Maps book to find which page you will find India?
Look at the many icons. What do you wonder about? Notice? Anything familiar it makes you think of? I notice the Lotus Flower at the top left of the page and it makes me think of Thailand and Vietnam.
Do you recognize any of the animals, flowers, landscape features that are similar to other countries we have studied so far this year? Any new animals, flowers or land features?
During our Tuesday and Friday class during the week of Jan. 4th, we will be reading the book, Once a Mouse by Marcia Brown and discussing the concept of humility.
