As part of our study on the continent of Asia we are beginning an in depth look at China. One great idea I saw on another homeschool blog was to construct a model of the Great Wall of China.
Of course as with all ideas borrowed from the internet this plan required adaptation! The original homeschooler used these really nifty blocks they purchased from Amazon.
We in the Southern hemisphere had to make our own blocks. Still a good Stanley knife and a keen eye and we were away! To begin with we decided to draw a path for the blocks. Then it was no time and the first row were attached.
