Our Study of Italy

Well, it's been well over a year since we studied Italy, but in an effort to catch up, I am going to back blog a few posts like this one.

Our study of Italy led us to the most fabulous book EVER! It is a children's fairy tale called, Papa Gatto. We loved this book. The best part is when the prince asks the wonderful sister to marry him and she tells him that she can't do that because she hardly knows him!!! So the sister decides to live with Papa Gatto and the prince can visit her there so that they can get to know one another.

Awesome! Brilliant girl!

Our get together at the end of our study included lots of fun!

We started with presentations, as we usually do.

Then we began to work on our mosaic designs. This was going to take some time, but the kids loved it! They were a mosaic kit from the craft store with foam squares you had to put in the numbered boxes. It was a definite hit.

Our next activity was making masks for Carnival in Venice. The kids had a great time doing these as well.

Then somewhere along the line, I lost my photos, so the rest isn't pictured. But we had a great time once again!
