Five in a Row: Henry the Castaway


For your little explorers, Henry the Castaway by Mark Taylor is a fun, fun read!  One morning Henry decides to go exploring and ends up on a remote island far from home, but like any explorer, Henry was prepared and was safely brought home.  I love books that display a child's imagination at work!  

The highlight of this row was creating a Tin Foil River & exploring just like Henry!

Homeschooling with Five in a Row

For Math, we re-visited tally marks
For Social Studies/ Geography, I printed out a Treasure Hunt worksheet from Beginning Geography
 and we made more flags to add to our Trip Around the World Garland; we chose two South American countries because Henry mentions the Orinoco River.

We have one more "row" to share with you!  If you are a rower, I hope you don't skip out on Henry the Castaway-- it's a great read and provides many opportunities to play and learn!

I'd love for you to follow along so you never miss out on one of our fun activities we share at School Time Snippets!
