I already knew that Me Too was enjoying a geography explosion. It became super obvious when I started putting together a "school days" post and saw how many pictures I had of him working with various maps. He seemed to be holding back from the pin maps for the past two months. However, when he was ready he was really ready and has explored them more than even Kal-El has. Kal-El has been avoiding the new "Oceania" and "Caribbean" maps but Me Too jumped in with gusto.
Me Too wanted to demonstrate the sturdiness of our pins in the foamboard.
Me Too mastered the South America puzzle map and then tested his own knowledge with the pin map. That is what got his feet wet and once he was in the water he didn't want to stop. He moved right on to the flags.
He continued on right through the capitals.
After years of relative indifference, Me Too is finally interested in the Antarctica continent box.
Me Too hasn't been doing all of this geography alone. Dueling pin maps are now a frequent sight.
Kal-El likes to practice the larger maps that he never really "mastered" 100%. He has spent a lot of time with the Asia and Europe maps lately.
I finished organizing my husband's coin collection so that it could be used in the continent boxes. Thanks to his parents extensive travels he had an impressive collection. Above Kal-El is admiring the coins in the Asia continent box.
The boys have been doing a lot of new work, particularly in math. I'll try to get the other subjects up in a "school days" post soon.
