Today was one of our homeschool lego days! It was the beginning of the series of the geography of the United states and they started with the northeastern part of the country. The idea was so simple, I just couldn’t believe that I didn’t think of it! 🙂 Each child chose a state and built the shape of their state on a building plate. After that, they marked where the capital of the state was with a brick. Next, they read the card that had facts about the state on it (some were pretty random) and they built something that told about their state. We ended the day with each child sharing what they built and why! This idea was so great! We may have to do this at home with our continents! Today Bunny got Delaware. She learned the capital is Dover, that there is a 10ft. frying pan made for the chicken festive, and that the state insect is the Ladybug! Here is a look at the work they did!
So there you have it! what do you think? Great way to learn about geography and still play right! How do you learn geography?

I love that idea! 🙂 I would have never thought of it, either! I love seeing what they did, and wish we had a program closer to us – the closest one is over an hour away. I seriously can’t imagine why my husband vetoed that one… lol 😉 So glad to see you all are doing well!

Hahaha! I drive about 40 min and even that is a stretch sometimes! At least this is something you could do at home easily! We are doing pretty well! Thanks for stopping here Amy. It always makes my day to hear from you!
