Geographical Awareness

Hannah has been asking me a lot about where her friend Sydney is going to be living, how far away she'll be and who she will live near, so yesterday we thought that marking the big map on the wall would be helpful in getting some perspective.

Hannah made these badges on shrinkles plastic, one for each of our family and friends who live in the USA. 

Then we baked them in the oven.

and they came out as tiny little picture cards.

Hannah then blu tac'd them on to the map where each person lives.

and now she knows where to find everyone, which state they are in and most importantly ...........she knows where Sydney is!

what a brilliant idea. I just LOVE how our kids are learning all the time; without even realising it. That's what never ceases to amaze me.

If we step out of the way, the desire to learn is so great and so NATURAL!

I love the map you have created - it's really gorgeous!
