Today was the much awaited Homeschool Geography Fair. Eight families gathered together to showcase all they learned about their chosen countries. The countries on display included China, Russia, Ukraine, Egypt, Australia, Switzerland, Canada, and Greece. The children really outdid themselves and everyone learned a lot as they did a scavenger hunt through the Fair. Each child received a small gift for completing the scavenger hunt, and afterward a drawing was held for this Panda with video grand prize.
Ben’s country to learn about and display was China. We had a great time this week learning about China and pandas using the Download-n-Go, Expedition China, along with the Giant Panda unit study from Homeschool Share. Ben displayed his Expedition China notebook/lapbook and his Giant Panda lapbook on his table, along with a trifold board, bamboo, dominoes, several books, an abacus, and fortune cookies.
Here are some pictures from the day. Of course, most of them will be of Ben’s China display. I think I captured some pictures from each country though. If you are interested in setting up a Geography Fair for your homeschool group, check out Ami’s blog for some ideas.
