South America Flag Work

To continue our study of South America, the children will have a chance to match various flag cards.  This is a work all of the children can successfully do without assistance after the initial presentation. 
Another extension to this work that can be completed is making their own flag book.  Given a blank page, a child can use a ruler, pencil and some crayons to create as many flags as they wish.  This child started with one, wanted to do another, then another and today finished a book.  She put on a purple cover and was very excited to take it home.  This is a work usually completed by older children or those with highly developed  fine motor skills.
Each year, the child's knowledge about a certain continent will expand with more variations and extensions.
