Geography for the week was all about Canada.We started by looking at the globe, coloring Canada on a map, coloring the flag of Canada, and looking at our continent box, where we found money, an ulu, and an eskimo doll.
Next we visited some online sites:
Coat of arms
National Anthem (French version)
Count to ten in French
They looked at this page of Canadian animals and then painted. Zahana painted a red fox and Arctic hare. Rohan chose wolverines. Elowen joined in too.
Just like brother!
Hockey! And Bingo.
For lunch we had poutine and butter tarts. I used this recipe for the dough. The lard makes a lovely, flaky crust. And this for the filling. I left out the nuts and used all maple syrup instead of using sugar. The kids loved them.
