Sorry for the fuzzy picture! Here is the last of my geography lapbooks and the first I ever made so there are a lot of “staple together” pieces before I learned better folds. 🙂 The tab book is history and culture with the info already written inside. There is language, facts, a a couple of geography questions to answer, weather, personal photographs from around the country and personal recipes from what I learned living there. I used to go once a week to a friend’s house and we’d shop at the bazaar and then cook together. Then my husband would bring the kids and our families would eat together. That was way back when I only had 2 (not 5) kids. The map included is a recent one which includes the country of Kosovo. The region has changed a lot so make sure you are learning from an updated map! You can download it from the Free Stuff! page. Like the others there is money math, Bible connection. I believe there is also a link to watch Macedonian folk dancing.
My son made a movie about Macedonia. We have a new digital way to make projects. Scratch is a computer programming language for 8 and up. There is another one for high schoolers. It’s just click and drag, but it can get a little tricky. You can make video games, movies and such. In his Macedonia movie this blue car (see below) travels around the country and my son recorded his voice talking about the different places as the car visited them.
Below is the lapbook we did on Italy from Homeschool Share. It has on there lots of links to videos from Italy that we watched as well.
Next post I’ll give you the wrap up of our language arts for the year. And if you are interested in Scratch, here is a link to watch the ecard we made this morning for my father. (We had to click to watch it with the Flash player to get it to work. If it says “Go Eagles,” then it has started playing automatically.
