Welcome to our “Week 11 in Review” using Exploring Countries and Cultures in My Father’s World!
Nature Study this week: Squirrels and Chipmunks
Our nature studies have been a priority in our schooling these past few weeks because the warm days are quickly coming to an end.
This week’s Outdoor Hour Challenge was to compare and contrast the squirrel and chipmunk.
We have lots of squirrels running around the woods near our home. But we have yet to spot a chipmunk. Maybe our 3 curious dachshund's keep them away!
Our Nature Study resources:
Geography Focus this week: South America, Brazil
This is our last week in South America. Next week we fly to Europe.
We studied the colors of the Brazilian flag and learned about the crops grown there.
A fun book I have enjoyed reading short tales, as we travel the world this year, has been the book Around the World in 80 Tales. The illustrations are beautiful too.
Geography Vocabulary notebook illustration: Marsh
Science focus this week: Tropical Rain forest
This was our last week learning about the Rain Forest. The girls picked two animals to study more in depth: the Jaguar and Quetzal. We watched the film Wild Amazon on the National Geographic channel.
