Art meets history. I have never been to D.C. and our daughter has not been there either so most of what the book has we know nothing of. Never the less it does not hinder the learning in anyway. When I do not know of a monument or whatever it is I look it up and then explain it in a way that our daughter can easily understand. Some of the pages in the book are very simple. All the student needs to do is simply draw what is asked or copy a piece of US history. Since our daughter loves to draw she quite enjoys this book. If you are looking for something to enhance your history or art class then this would be a wonderful little book to get.
A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
