Today we moved on to South America in our geography unit study. If I was really cool, I would have activities and food for each country, but alas, all I have to offer you is our book list. Enjoy.
We got books from each country (Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Chile, Bolivia, Venezuela) from the A True Book series and the following picture books: (I must admitted that we have only been looking at the pictures from the True Books and then reading the corresponding picture books, which by the way have been fabulous stories with wonderful morals and ideas.)
Chaska and the Golden Doll
Tonight is Carnaval
Also, we looked at Children of the Ecuadorean Highlands and Children of Bolivia and listen to our tape of Magic Treehouse - Afternoon on the Amazon.
