Cost Rica Study & Travel

February 9th, 2015

We studied Costa Rica during the month of December and January.  As always, we started the process by completing the fact sheets for this small country and updated our religion and population graph.

 

After having learnt about this country from books, it was time to experience it first-hand.  We visited Costa Rica for about a week.  It was one of our best trips.  After having magical moments in Costa Rica, we came back and recorded our experience in detail on an online journal at Mixbook.com.  Kabir worked really hard on this project.

Arjun made “Capi Capi” t-shirt for himself and Kabir made “Pura Vida” t-shirt for himself.

Then we met with our homeschool friends for Central America party.  As part of the presentation, Kabir and Arjun presented our online travel journal named Costa Rica.  After the presentations, we sampled delicious Central American cuisine.

Both the kids earned Costa Rica stamps in their pretend passport!  Now, we are off to England!

Today, we had about 18 children at the Lego Club meeting.  Today’s quest was to recreate Tupelo out of Lego.  We made road with masking tape on the carpet.  Kids made all sorts of landmarks in Tupelo – some were real and some were imaginary.  They made library, gun shop, airports, factory, mirror maze, movie theaters, football field, park, random buildings, houses, towers, train, telescope, robot zoo, lab fortress, car wash and so much more.  It was fun!

My mother-in-law quilts only when she is in Tupelo, i.e., about four months.  I do not have photos for all her projects but here are few photos.
