Our Madeline Unit Study

I said that I was going to start sharing more about what we are doing with school so here goes. :)
We did a unit study from Five in a Row on the book Madeline. We used information from Home School Share to create a lapbook also. Meghan learned where France is and why the city of Paris was built on a river. She learned about character traits, about the landmarks in Paris, and we talked about the author of the book and the illustrations. For math she learned about grouping and dividing, sizing and symmetry. We also talked about health and how to take care of your body. She learned some organs and body parts as well. She had a few foods that are served in France too. Nathan said they eat Nutella on sliced baguette so we had that. He's been to Paris twice so we take his word for it. He studied French in high school and went to Europe for his senior trip and then we went to Paris for our honeymoon. She also had croissants one day as well. Nutella is a chocolate and hazelnut spread. I had never had it myself. It's really good.

I plan to try and be better about sharing this stuff. Right now we are working on a unit study with the book Apples to Oregon. It is about a family and their trip on the Oregon trail. We are going to St Louis so thought this would be great to do right before going. It's a lot of fun. I will share more on that when we are done with it.

Here are a few pictures of Meghan's lapbook and her and Kaden enjoying the Nutella. :)
