Asia Activities and Resources

 As we go through our Around the World Homeschool studies, I thought I'd share some of the resources we used. Here are some of the things we did for Asia. I will post the individual country units as we do them.

We started out with a few Asian books.
He did the Asian pages in the Barefoot Books World Atlas Sticker Book. I think there were actually four Asia spreads.

We also looked through the Asian pages in our various atlases (you can see which ones we use here). This spread is from the Lift-The-Flap Picture Atlas
Asian Page from A World of Gratitude
Both of my younger kids play with animal figurines a lot, so I got out our Asian animals (regular size, not Toob size). We have a red panda, mama and baby panda, gibbon, daddy, mama and baby lion, mama and baby white tiger and mama and baby tiger.
South Asian River Dolphin spread from The Wild Life of Animals
We try to read some poetry every week, so this week Archer read the Asian pages from Around the World on Eighty Legs

He did his Asia tray puzzle and Asia GeoPuzzle.
The continent art was new for us this week. I started by printing an outline of the Asian continent onto cardstock, having him cut it out and trace it on watercolor paper. Then I used a paper punch (from this set) to punch out bleeding tissue paper.
Then he picked out the colors for the continent and other colors for the background. He used a wet brush to stick the tissue paper down. We let it dry and shook the tissue paper off.
Finally, he used a Sharpie to retrace his original outline. As you can see, we did have some bleeding (I think because he didn't clean out the brush between colors). I still think it looks neat.
