We have officially launched into our geography study, heading first to the continent of Africa. We’ve memorized the continents, thanks to some really fun Geography Songs. Now, we’ve headed to the country of South Africa.
Day 1—We found South Africa on the map and listened to our new song on the countries of Southern Africa:
Malawi, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambiqu,
Namibia, South Africa,
Lesotho and Swaziland—these are the countries of Southern Africa.
Comoros and Seychelles and Madagascar
and Mauritius are islands to the east.
Then, we read our library book A is for Africa. And stamped our passports!
Day 2—We reviewed our songs and looked at Africa in our atlas.
Then, we studied our geography terms for South Africa: cape, plateau, and grasslands. Last, we spent about five more minutes coloring the country of South Africa for our notebooking page.
Each day we spent about 15 minutes, so I was thrilled that my plans actually fit into the allotted time. That’s always a relief!
And not only are the kids learning a ton already (more than I expected), we are having an absolute blast. I can’t wait to share the rest of the adventure with you.
