Home Educators Geography Fair

Home Educators Geography Fair

If you follow my Facebook page then you may have spotted me writing about the home educators geography fair that we are taking part in at the end of the month. The children want to do their project on Slovakia, so our task for the next week is to create a display all about Slovakia.

So far I’ve created some lapbook style inserts with some key facts on and we have been learning about the flag and the coat of arms on the flag and what it represents. We have talked about Slovakia being a much smaller country than our own, and we will do some more on that too.

 

My Dad went to Slovakia a few months ago, and it is this that has got the children interested so I think we will do some looking at the types of roads and maybe something transport based too – my Dad tells me the police cars are different in Slovakia so this will be a good exercise to consider similarities and difference.

I also plan to do something around key cities and rivers, but haven’t quite worked out how we will do that yet. We have also looked at some of the food that is eaten and did have a go at making an apple and bread cake – it wasn’t a huge success, I think probably because I’m not the best at baking! We do however have another recipe to try out this weekend, so I hope we are more successful with that!

Finally, we have to have a little think about how we will display our project. I feel a bit behind on this project as we have lost a week due to illness last week, however I am sure we will pull something together in time for next week!

I’m also super excited that the team at Quarto and BSmall Publishing have supplied some fabulous prizes for the judges to award on the day – I can’t wait to see the other projects and to get some inspiration for our next project.

    What a great project. Our Great Fire of London project is due in next week and we haven’t even started it yet. Normally I’m on top of these things but clearly not this term! I’ll blame the house move….

    This looks like a great project to do with kids. I’ll definitely bookmark this idea for my 4 year old as he only started primary school however he’s already interested in geography

    What a fantastic project to be doing, I visited Slovakia last year and loved it. And I agree with your dad the police cars are so different
