It was a small pocket book that allowed me to study and "visit" (through children's literature) 5 different countries.
We traveled to:
returned to the USA via the Polar Express.
We used our maps to locate the country and discussed continents and oceans.
We read a children's picture book and shared a recipe or traditional treat from that country. Then we became a bit artsy and made a craft to tie in with the country's customs and traditions.
Each country has 2 bookmarks tucked inside the page pocket (that is the ribbon sticking out) ... 1 bookmark has the recipe and the other has the title and author of the book.
We returned home 'just in time' for WINTER BREAK via the Polar Express.
