The Olympics

We are going to be in full Olympics mode come Friday. We started on Thursday with a little geography lesson. I've had this world map puzzle for about a year now, but we hadn't started it. It will be perfect for the Olympics. We are going to work on it a little bit each day and talk about the countries represented. Mr. C already found Mali which excited him because they discussed Mali during VBS. He told me all about mosquitos, malaria, and mosquito nets. It was fun to see him making that connection.
While doing the edges, we briefly talked about longitude, latitude, coordinated, and the equator.
Other than the puzzle, I haven't really planned any formal Olympics activities. However, I'm going to leave plenty of room in our schedule to follow bunny trails and do some research on countries and sports.
