Yesterday they did a fun activity before they went hunting for The Gingerbread Man. I get free worksheets via email from www.education.com.
Next they recorded the names of the toys and looked for what country made them. Ken choice of toys really made this bookworm's heart smile.
The last thing they did was draw conclusions from their findings. They answered questions like What country made the most of the toys you chose? Do you think any of the toys made in other countries could also be made in your country?
Overall it was a fun research activity and sneaked in some geography.
