We did a small a small Social Studies unit on Russia last week. Did you know there is actually a statue called Mother Russia? I posted it above.
Our study was on Ivan the Terrible, Ivan the Great, Peter the Great, and Catherine the Great.
Monster child did agree that Ivan the Terrible was pretty bad but he didn’t think Ivan the Great was that great either.
We did another lapbook on Russia and I made him do most of the work. There was no real templates for this so we made up our own.
I had to explain why they had two flags and why there was two founded dates. That was very confusing to him.
This week we start Japan!
Peace, Love, and Cupcakes!
