The Geography Vocabulary notebook displays a forest animal, the raccoon. My daughter used the Draw Write Now book for instructions on how to draw the it.
The girls colored 3D forests and their animals. I got them from a Rod and Staff Inside and Outside workbook.
~ a 30 minute video called Way Cool Science: Biotrackers
It is an overview of the habitats and their animals, within each continent.
This DVD is very worth tracking down from the library.
Animal Focus this week:
I let the girls pick 2 animals from each continent to study. They get to put a lapbook together in their binders. Most of my resources are from Homeschool Share and the library.
M6 picked a porcupine but instead I thought she picked a hedgehog. So I got all the books and lapbook mini folders cut out and wahhhh-lahhhhh ~ hedge hogs do NOT come from North America (shhh but we did it anyway).
