This week, I'm giving away two of the resources I'm using this year. The first is a book from the excellent I Wonder Why series. (If you've never used any of these books before, you should totally look for them at your local library/bookstore or on Amazon.)
Which country has more than 800 languages?I Wonder Why Countries Fly Flags (affliate link) is a wonderful teaching book because each page explores a question - sometimes two! I like to begin by asking my kids the question first and making it interactive by having them share/guess their answers. Sometimes we write things on our dry erase board in a KWL chart, or simply list what we do know and make educated guesses to complete the answers. Sometimes all I need to do is ask them guided questions, while at other times we have to do research.
Where is there land, but no countries?
Which is the world's most popular sport?
This particular book is a clever source of information from around the world. And the illustrations are vibrant and engaging for my kids. I think your child will love it, too!
One lucky MommyMaestra reader will win both books to use at home or in school!
