Little Passports: U.S.A. Edition

Next, we used the Little Passports U.S.A. Edition portfolio to get a great initial survey of this beautiful country. Every month, this awesome subscription sends information about all the states in the union. It is very fun and thorough. We loved the hands-on accessories that came with the first kit.

In the first Little Passports U.S.A. Edition kit, we got: USA Field Guide (an awesome journal to keep information and stickers for every state), U.S.A. Scratch Book and wooden scratcher (with national symbol, landmarks and facts about them).

We also got a wall-sized U.S.A. Map (it is different from the other kits, so it was cool to get a new map), a welcome letter from new pen pals Sam & Sofia, a disposable Camera and Photo Scavenger Hunt Project (I love the old school feel!).

United States Educational Puzzle

This is a fabulous puzzle! My son’s aunt gave him this puzzle for his birthday and we absolutely love it! Building puzzles are great to learn patience, deep thinking, to perfect eye-hand coordination, precise small movements, shape and orientation recognition and many more necessary and essential skills.

Building puzzles also helps children practice coordination and problem-solving skills…essential skills in life, in my opinion. The second part of our puzzle-building activity was a geography-oriented lesson. We read the states on the puzzle map and found the capitals in our stack of cards.

And because this puzzle has pictures all over that have to do with each state, we had fun discussing why the Gateway Arch is in Missouri and why a video camera is in California. We also loved the Golden Gate, the giant pretzel and even a dinosaur. My personal favorite is the skier. 🙂
