Studying Korea: Week 2

This week we finished our tour of the peninsula of Korea. I found several other websites to visit this week with the girls. This week we focused more on South Korea.

Monday

  • Talked about kimchi pots
  • Mapped the Yellow Sea and the capitals of Norht & South Korea and explored on our globe a little more

Tuesday

Wednesday

  • Talked about Korean currency – I put together a little info sheet with pictures of the current South Korean currency (you can print off a copy for yourself below if you would like)
  • Practiced Korean numbers

Thursday

  • Made Korean beef tips (one of Daddy’s favorite meals)
  • Put our notebooks together with our Korean studies information
  • Marked our passports as having studied Korea

 

We are still reading aloud the book Archer’s Quest by Linda Sue Park (and I’m even interested to see how this is going to turn out!). Laurianna has continued reading Seesaw Girl by Linda Sue Park and McKenna LOVES the book Dear Juno by Soyung Pak.

What We’re Reading

Here is the document with the South Korean currency: Next week we will be starting a three week study of Japan … and I so need to get working on those lesson plans. I’ve started researching some things, but haven’t sat down long enough to put it all down (that’s usually my Friday afternoon and Sunday evening routine).

 

Our Panda Lapbooks – the video version

Our panda lapbook from Homeschool Share was a great way to wrap up our study of China. The girls wanted to have themselves videotaped showing off their lapbooks this time, so that’s what we did! Laurianna shows off her lapbook in the first video and then McKenna shares a litte bit of hers.

Some great Panda Resources
