Expedition Earth: Argentina

Buen Dia’ and welcome to our Expedition Earth week on Argentina! Did you know the Iguazu Falls are a series of falls on the Iguacu River that stretch a distance of over two miles. Their name comes from an Indian word meaning great water.  That’s just one of the cool things we learned about this week!

So of course we started by going over all the countries we’ve learned so far, then found Argentina on the map.

  1. We're loving this curriculum, Erica! Thanks. It's fun to see how other families use it.

  2. I am so in love with both your curriculums. I have a question about them though. Which one should I use first for my kids. I will be using them for my 2 younger kids will be 2nd grade and preschool. Should I start with the US or the World?

  3. Found your blog from Joey's "A Different Way". We've talked about homeschooling for awhile now (our kids are still infants!), but I've always been intimidated to go past 1st or 2nd grade. I have to admit, your blog really made it look do-able and FUN. How exciting it must be to learn with your kids! Lindsey @ GrowingKidsMinistry.com

  4. Jen L: I think maybe the world geography. They're both about the same grade level, so it really doesn't matter, but my preschooler did really well with the World Geo. so I guess I'd start with that. There's lots of fun crafts.
