I bought the Calvert School PA State History course for my youngest son last year, and never did use it. I have been able to find time this year, and he's been enjoying it.
Tuesday's assignment was for the child to draw a map of the state. My boy decided this was boring, and made a 3D map.
He knows the mountains go farther north than this in Pennsylvania, but he put his mountains on the south central border, where they are the highest. He also made a tiny paper capital building for Harrisburg, and towers for the most important cities in the state: Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Scranton and Erie. Allentown wasn't important enough to him to try to shoehorn it between Scranton and Philadelphia.
And I love that he made rivers, too. While it's certainly not complete geographically, the little guy had fun. And that counts for something in school, right?
And Happy Veteran's Day to all of our veterans and their families. You are always in my thoughts.
