Africa Continent Box

Our Beloved Aunt S recently went to Zimbabwe & South Africa on a fantastical adventure that included trekking the Kalahari desert, swimming the Zambezi river and almost peeking her head over Victoria Falls. Her husband, Uncle B did in fact peek his head over the edge. She posted the video on facebook, it was Awesome! Note to Self: I must start teaching my Beloveds about God's Magnificent Creations (or the Natural Wonders of the Earth)

Well, Aunt S sent a box of wonderful souvenirs from her travels and I thought this would be a perfect start for our African Continent Box.
Aunt S sent two dolls, a lion, two dollies, currency souvenir, three pencils, three bracelets
two puzzles, and a T-shirt (not pictured). I ordered the African Village sticker book from Amazon.

This elephant puzzle took alot of patience and concentration. After two settings,
Z Man and I finally completed it.

Another activity we did, was pin the African animals to their region. Our map
is getting more use than what I originally made it for.
I am so grateful to God for His many Blessings.

    I so wish that I could come to a complete halt in regards to working outside of the home and home school my son. What a gift? I hope that your children appreciate your efforts.

  2. This is amazing unit study ... and a wonderful way to start your continent box! Thanks so much for sharing my continent boxes post and for linking up with Montessori Monday. I featured your post and top photo in my Montessori-Inspired Study of Africa at
