Geography ABCs

After deep thoughts yesterday, I thought I would just share a little something fun today.  Lego is a HUGE fan of maps and geography.  Recently we got this Geography from A to Z book, and we are working our way through it.  We thought that it would be fun to create some of the landforms in the book.  We decided to make an archipelago and an atoll out of salt dough.  We made a batch of salt dough, dried it in the microwave, and then painted an ocean to place our islands in.  Once the islands were dry, we put them in the ocean and painted them green.  It turned out really cool looking, and he will definitely remember them for a long time.  And no, Lego is not the only one learning some of these landforms...so if you had to think about what an atoll is, don't feel bad!

  1. Hi there,
    I am following your from From House to Home. Great to study geography. I live in Canada - my province is Ontario. My town is Haliburton. Can you find me?
    I love that you did Operation Christmas Child last year. We have been doing this for many years and find it a delight.
