There's A Map On My Lap

 We have been reading some really good books that has inspired the children to do more work in the cultural area. There's A Map on My Lap (All About Maps) By Tish Rabe, this book is part of  The Cat In The Hat Knows All About That series. The other popular book is Homes Around The World by Max Moore, it is published by DK Readers and is beginning to read level 1.



          This is Franklin working with the World Puzzle Map with control map.


DJ is looking at photos of people and places from North America. These card have information about the picture on the bottom.


                                                Here is a close up of two of the photos.


                       Jamesha is looking at pictures of homes from different continents.



                                                  A close up of the pictures.


 On the back I glued a picture of the continent so the children can locate on the continent map puzzle where the home on the picture is from,also  they may want to sort the pictures by continent.

  1. Both of these books sound great. Love the activities of identifying the different pictures from different continents. Thank you for linking up this week.

  2. Homes Around The World looks very interesting. I like that your house cards, have the continents on the back - that's a nice connection.

  3. They look like they are having fun.

  4. I think I know where you got those pictures from. I might have the same ones. Maybe.......

  5. Ticia, I printed both sets of pictures from the Montessori Print Shop.

  6. I'm finally getting to everyone's geography link ups this week...that looks neat! We've been doing a little bit with maps lately, and I totally forgot that we have that There's a Map on My Lap! book - thanks for the reminder; I'll get it out for them.

  7. What a wonderful set of activities! I love them.
