Brazil – Country Study Resources


brazil

 

 

 

We have studied Brazil in the past but we had so much fun with it that I thought I would write up some resources for you. Some of them will be just on Brazil but others will be on the rain forest or continent of South America. 

 

banana fritattas

I made these for breakfast the first morning we studied Brazil. 

I basically made pancakes and then fried the bananas in butter and sugar. Then I covered the pancakes with the bananas and added whipped topping.  SOOOO GOOD!!!!!

I think that is the only picture I took from when we studied Brazil. 

 

As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

All printable resources are free unless marked with $$$.

Let me say that I am NOT affiliated in ANY way with ANY companies. I don’t get a dime for you clicking over to Amazon or Currclick or any other site. I am just trying to put together as many great resources as I can find to give you and me plenty of options. ;)

Learn About Russia – Study Resources


Russian Flag

 

 

I decided to make a bigger Russia study to go along with the resources I put together for the Winter Olympics. The one I made before so was just a few resources that we used. Not very big at all! LOL

As well, as the resources I have provided, there are so many other branches to study when looking at Russia: music, ballet, art, literature, history, architecture. Go ahead and follow those rabbit trails! 😉

 

As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

All printable resources are free unless marked with $$$.

The holidays are over and it’s back to the daily grind! I’ll be putting up more unit study resources this month. It’s about all I can work on until I can figure out a way to get my sewing stuff unpacked.

This set of resources isn’t very long, unfortunately there just isn’t a lot out there for Argentina.

As always, I include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

India Country Study – with FREE Notebooking Pages


_0000_ indian-goddess-vintageimage-Graphics-Fairy3

(graphic from The Graphics Fairy)

Yes, yet another homeschool unit…. Are you getting tired of them?? I promise to be back with more sewing soon. I just have to get some of these out of my system and documented so they are ready to use for the upcoming school year. August is usually a pure planning month for me but I hope to fit in some sewing time very soon!!!

I made some more notebooking pages! And I have discovered why some of my other pages were messing up when converted to PDF!

*************FREE NOTEBOOKING PAGES******************** made by me with the help of clipart from PhillipMartin.info)

India-NotebookingSSaS (1)

As always, I try to incorporate resources for a variety of ages. I want everyone to be able to use the units! 😀

All resources are free unless marked with $$$. And even then, I try to list the cheapest resources I find.

Most of the books you can find through your local library system, on Amazon or Paperback Swap.

Taking Requests


Since I have been posting units WAY ahead of when we will actually use them and since I had a friend request a theme yesterday, I thought that I would put the request out there! Do you have a theme or unit that you would like some help with??? I am ready to help you out to the best of my ability! Need some notebooking pages? I can make them (I’m getting MUCH better, I promise).

So, what do you need??? Just comment or use the Contact Me button and shoot me an email!

I am always more than happy to help someone out in whatever way I can.

Have any homeschooling questions? Ask me! If I don’t know the answer, I’ll try to find it! 😉

Here are some units that I am working on now –

Simple Machines (tomorrow)

Fireflies (day after tomorrow)

India

Native Americans

 

I’ve also been thinking about put up a syllabus of sorts for some of the older kids’ courses this year. Both Deanna and Joshua want to take History of Science. Yep, I’ll be making that one up. LOL I’ve already started a list. Mostly we will be focusing on the scientists from different time periods and their contributions.

Joshua wants to do military history, another off one. 😉 I’ll be working on that as well. He has done some military history in the past but….. Well, some of the kids slacked a bit last year. I don’t blame them. It was definitely a crazy year! But that means that they will be carrying some classes over. No biggie.

I am definitely more of a laid back homeschooler.  I am not what you might call an unschooler, but I am fairly close. 😉

I am NOT a lover of text books… My kids do use them to some extent, mostly for math. I like to do research and I like for them to go deeper into subjects than text books usually go. So, that is why I make most of my own stuff. We use a lot of notebooking, sometimes made by me, and lapbooks, sometimes made by me.

So, any requests??? Any questions???
