We have been studying Russia this week- its geography, culture and history.
Quentin made this scrapbook page in our postcard-geography album.
|The postcard is from Norden; Saint Petersburg, Russia.|
We got it through Postcrossing.
|I liked the fact that she put the temperature with a little weather icon on the back of the postcard.|
|Quentin found Russia on our world map and colored it orange.|
|He made a little lapbook booklet on the landscape regions of Russia.|
The Regions of Russia which included the
Steppes: A vast semiarid grass-covered plain, as found in southeast Europe, Siberia, and central North America.
Taiga: A forest located in the Earth's far northern regions, consisting mainly of cone-bearing evergreens such as firs, pines, and spruces.
Tundra: A cold, treeless, usually lowland area of far northern regions. The lower strata of soil of tundras are permanently frozen, but in summer the top layer of soil thaws and can support low-growing mosses, lichens, grasses, and small shrubs.
|James and I reviewed some facts about Russia with this write-on/wipe off booklet.|
|Although they could not be added to the album, the little boys made these paper Matryushka or Nesting Dolls.|
|and enjoyed them very much.|
We ate Beef Stroganoff, which was really tasty. It is now a favorite. It is so nice to try dishes from all over the world and especially nice when they get added to our recipes!
