|Our Salt Dough Map of the World, minus Antartica and Greenland!
I think we had a Montessori school-day this week. The girls woke up and were super interested in doing maps. My youngest brought home an unfinished map of the seven continents from co-op and was intent on finishing it. Well once Madison saw that, she couldn't finish her math work fast enough so that she could do some map work. So I printed one off of Google and gave it to her and they colored and compared and talked about maps for at least an hour.
I figured it was a great day to do our first salt dough map and why not be adventurous and do it of the world. Yeah sure, I doubted myself some but I figured it couldn't be that hard and creatively speaking, what better time to do such a project than when you actually feel inspired to do it versus attempting it simply because it's on your lesson plan for the day? So we dove in. We went to the dollar store and picked up a poster. We busted up a box from the garage and proceeded to use all of the salt we had on hand and half of the flour! :) It was quite the adventure for us!
Oh did I leave out the fact that we left out Antartica and Greenland? :) I totally forgot to draw them in! So I guess it's sort of a salt dough map of the world...
Thanks to this awesome squidoo lense our venture was made super easy! Enjoy our pics below!!!!
