Jas has been learning about different animals of the world as part of his Sonlight Curriculum. It takes us much more time to finish one lesson as some of the animals we study more in depth. This time we read about deers. Afterwards we made a short project about these animals.
I got the idea for this project from Homeschool Share. Our project is just a part of the lapbook that you can find there. I've printed out the cards with information about the deer family, but not the photos. I let Jas look for photos on the Internet and put them in a file.
We had only the English names for all the deer family, but we wanted to know what there are called in Polish, Chinese and in Latin, so we searched Wikipedia. Jas made a list of the names in all four languages.
The weight and height of the animals was given in inches and pounds so we had to search for the same information given in centimeters and kilogrammes. We also added different sizes of male and female deer.
We also added more animals from the deer family.
