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

While there is so much more that we could do in our studies, we kept it fairly simple this week. In all honestly, Italy is a place we could spend waaaaay more time learning about ~ ancient Rome, the Roman empire, Pompeii…the list goes on! We started our study of Italy last week and that post also has some other great links and resources, so be sure to check it out!

Here are the things we focused on this week and some links we liked and used.

Monday

  • Quick review of last week’s studies: capital, major cities, geography features {i.e. Italy is a peninsula, Sicily is an island}
  • Took a virtual tour of Italy
  • Geography song about Eastern Europe ~ point out countries while singing
  • Color & learn about the flag of Italy

  • Review geography song
  • Read Michaelangelo by Diane Stanley
  • Had fun trying to paint while laying on our backs {a little messy and tricky…poor Michaelangelo!}
  • Stamped our passports, put our papers in our notebooks and packed up since our trip to Italy is done!
