Explorers & Our World Map

Today we hung up our world map that we had bought quite a few months ago. I wish we had put it up sooner as we had so much fun with it!

We started back to school "part-time" today & will start "full-time" next Monday. All we ended up doing today was about an hour of history - studying Explorers.

We read the book Explorers by Fradin - a New True Book. As each country was mentioned, we looked it up on the map. And, we traced the paths that the various explorers traveled. As I'm not very good in geography, we had to refer to the computer several times. I know this map will help us both as we learn geography alongside history!
