This week we “traveled” to Japan and India. The beginning of the week we made and decorated suitcases to take on our travels.
Our first stop was Japan and then traveled to India the later half of the week.
Our first source for learning about each country is through Little Passports (www.littlepassports.com ).
“Little Passports sends a “souvenir” with each country packet. D2 is looking at the tiger from the India packet”
We also used Spotify (www.spotify.com ) to listen to native music for each country.
National Geographic was a great resource for us as well (Japan: http://kids.nationalgeographic.com/kids/places/find/japan/ & India: http://kids.nationalgeographic.com/kids/places/find/india/ ).
All our printable material came from Education.com (www.education.com )
And we tried authentic foods for each country.
“Tamarind Rice & Gup Shup Peanuts for India (Indian food can be purchased locally at the Taj Mahal Restaurant)” (http://www.tajiowa.com/)
Can’t wait to see where we travel to next week:)
