Another thrift store find, this geography kit was only $2 brand new. It included a book, an inflatable globe and stickers.
The book has really neat activities here and there. This activity showed how ancient people could tell the world was round. Norah kept the Lego figure touching the globe and moved it forward. The Lego figure's legs disappeared, then his torso, then finally his head. And, in the same way, ancient people watched through spy glasses as ships disappeared hull to sail, not all at once, proving their was a curve in the horizon.
At the end of each chapter, you place stickers on the globe. We're a few chapters into the book and the book is short, so we'll finish in a few days. This is making for an interesting addition to our regular routine of study.
