I just love this map I found at Toys R Us. I don't love what I paid for it and I admit it was an impulse buy. But when I saw this big felt map with all the country names and felt animals, too, I thought of my little geography wizard. Prince (5) can identify countries on a world map that most adults can't. He's always been interested in geography and Five in a Row has really cultivated this in him. Measle and Prince went right to work and labeled their map within minutes of opening it. I'm hoping we'll get our floor map out again and again. (Several of the kids had already worked a floor map of the US earlier today.) And the best part... they thought it was a fun game!
How do you squeeze in undercover learning?
