This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy .

We continued on our journey through Spain focusing this week a little more on the culture and also art {Picasso}. We also spent time learning about Columbus {and yes, I know he wasn’t from Spain, but Spain was generous in supporting his trip, so we tied it in that way}. :)

Here’s a look at how we spent our second week learning about Spain.

Monday

  • Quick review of main stuff from our first week studying Spain
  • Geography song for Southern Europe
  • Look at the currency for Spain
  • Read story from Around the World in 80 Tales {link in book carousel below}
  • Visit National Geographic for Kids site

Tuesday

  • Review geography song
  • Talk about Christopher Columbus {from Italy, but trip funded by Spain}
  • Story of Ferdinand on You Tube


Wednesday
  • Review geography song
  • Talk about Picasso
  • Picasso art project ~ Picasso faces. We pulled out oil pastels and created a collage of faces with cubistic/abstract design. They had a little trouble understanding how to make the faces ‘mesh’ at first, but LOVED it once they got going!

Thursday

  • Review geography song
  • Running of the bulls and bull fighting ~ YouTube clips
  • Put together food from country {pico de gallo}
