5 Fun "Homework" Ideas for 5 Year Olds
3. Geography: My kids started to get really interested in other countries during the Olympics, but they had a really hard time understanding how huge the United States of America really is. Every time we travel, it's hard to explain that we are still in our country. I found a relatively inexpensive globe on Amazon, Elenco 11" Desktop Political Globe, and my daughter loves looking at it. I have used it to explain north and south, how it is hotter at the equator and colder at the North and South Pole. I picked out certain countries and explained some of the things they do there and even used my iPad to show photos of the people of the country, the customs of the country, etc. I have never seen my daughter so interested in anything! I had to practically glue her eyes shut that night to get her sleep.
