This week we (kinda) "rowed" a Before Five in a Row book titled, "If Jesus Came to My House" by Joan Thomas. We talked about Jesus' love for us and how to treat others (tie-in with Valentine's Day), and shadows. Since the book was about a what little boy would do if Jesus came to his house, I thought it would be a neat tie in to find our special place on the map... where in this gigantic world is our house?! Where are we? To prep us for this activity, I read "Me on the Map" by Joan Sweeney. I hope you enjoy!
I am glad we did this project; it has been pinned for quite some time! T and I both thought it was neat to see where we are in relation to our city, state, country, continent, and the world! I believe the original idea came from Finally in First. In my search for map printables, Counting Coconuts also blogged about their own version.
