Norway



Map, flag,and globe to start.  Norwegian folk music.
While Zahana waited for Rohan to finish his flag, she drew her own version of a Norwegian girl.


After talking about fjords and looking at pictures of them, we played the game.


Elowen watched.




The library books we read:

We also read a story from Children of Foreign Lands and the Norway page from Passport to the World.

Some Norwegian Christmas traditions include feeding the birds . . .


. . . and the barn elf!


We looked at these beautiful Nat Geo pictures of the Sami reindeer herders then made a reindeer craft.


Elowen watched.




Happy Vikings.


Fierce Vikings.


Viking log toss.






Making sand kager and glogg.






Zahana's Norwegian girl.

And we watched youtube video of the northern lights in Norway.  Several ideas this week came from the blog, Around the World in 40 Weeks.
