So this week in our Expedition Earth studies we "travelled" to China and learned some amazing things along the way! First things first, the girls had to stamp their passports! I printed all the flags on White full sheet labels so that we could cut them out and stick them in the passports.
The girls each got to practice writing their names in Mandarin Chinese. We went to Google Translate to get the characters. They also did numbers 0-10 in Chinese!
We had fun making the Great Wall of China! I got creative and used a long piece of cardboard. I cut it to look like a wall and then the girls painted it...even added a nice touch of grass and flowers at the bottom.
They did a map & flag activity. We discovered that Mt. Everest is the tallest mountain in the world!
We also added our China emblem to our continents wall poster under Asia!

They did their Animal mini-books and added 6 Animal's to the classification chart!
Giant Panda, Red Panda, Stork, Pangolin, Golden Monkey, & Snow Leapord.
