We finally got to do our Turkey lapbook. This is one of those geography lapbooks that were the first I ever made. It has history, facts, language and weather. There are also photographs and recipes.
Like all of the country lapbooks in the back of the material is a page with some extra info, money math and Bible connection. Turkey has tons of connections to the Bible. You can see the one question there, “Where in Turkey did Noah’s ark land?” Mt. Ararat is in Turkey as well as every church in Revelations and many of the places Paul visited on his missionary journeys. There is a photograph from Ephesus in the pictures included.
We’re finished with the Middle East now. We did go on a couple more field trips. We went to a museum with wax figures at the loom, making pottery, etc. We also visited this tombs carved out of the rock in the ground. It is in the location of an ancient Hittite village. It was pretty cool to see a tomb like where Jesus would have been laid and to see the big round rocks that were rolled in front of the doors.
The Turkey lapbook is on the Free Stuff! page for download. Now we’ve started Europe and it will be our last destination. June will end our school year and July will start our new one. I’ve started getting ready. We’ll be doing 20th century history and physics and chemistry. I’ll have a 6th grade girl, and boys in 4th, 1st and preschool. (And of course the baby)
