We are finishing up our last week of South American studies. We decided to put out this fun 'pin' map of South America. The children get to match the different country flags in each continent and here they pin each flag to it's own country.
A few of the children can actually read the words on the back of the flags and match them by reading the names of the countries. Our beginning readers enjoyed this just as much as they matched the letters in the words. It ended up being a matching activity for them. We made many observations about the flags and they all had their favorites.
When they finished with the pin work, many children decided to color in their own South America map.
