Postcard-World Geography Album: Russia


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!

  1. This is a great unit. We also did a small unit to Russia last year and did the same paper dolls. I am definitely going to do more when daughter is a bit older.
