what’s new with the geoboxes

So far we only did the Italy geobox, the children get tired after school and while they ask for school to happen at home, it ends up with them not really into it despite their best effort.  So, it all went in hibernation till Summer.

However, there is a bit of twist to make all this even more interesting.  Before we start a geobox, the children will receive a boarding pass. It is an exciting way to pique their interest.  At the end of that study unit, they will get a stamp on their passports (we have our own version which I did myself).

While doing a particular country, we will cook traditional food of that place, watch movies if available, listen to music, look at art, read books and do crafts/activities all related to that country.

The children saw me setting up the lapbooks related to the countries we will be doing next and are anxious to start. Looking forward myself to next month so our school can re start!
