Today's lesson was in Geography. The boys have been asking questions about the world so we started today with Continents. It was a good review for me. I had to look it up to remember. But we have a large floor puzzle of the world so once I got the refresher from an internet search, it went great. We put the youngest, R, who is almost 18months, down for a nap. Then we began our puzzle. We talked about how there are 7 continents. Then we named them all, North America, South America, Antarctica, Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia. To help them remember I told them a few facts about each continent. We were talking about the continents for a good 2 hours. The boys got to the point where if I gave them the first sound of the continent, they could tell me what it was. By the end of the lesson, my oldest had all but 2 of them memorized without help. Looks like we'll keep reviewing this for the week. For the rest of the week, each day we'll focus on one continent at a time and by the end of the week we'll do a review.
