Several weeks ago, the kids were able to test out their building skills in one of our history activities. We were studying the Pilgrims move to Holland and learning about the landscape of this new country. I just love our curriculum!!!! This activity is one of many very cool things with get to do with HOD. It is a very tactile and "do and see" curriculum which helps learning really stick!
They learned all about what canals are and how important the dike built by the ocean was to this little town. Here are some examples of our very own dikes.
Just about done building...
We placed Monopoly JR. ticket booths on one side of the dike to represent the town and then poured water on the other side to show what would happen when the water would rise...
Looks like we need to make a small repair in the bottom of his dike.
