Climbing Jiannan 劍南山

In Taipei there are many mountain paths and walks that one can climb and enjoy the nature just above the city. Today, during Ania's nature class, we explored one of such walks.

We drove to Dazhi 大直, right next to the big shopping mall and ferries wheel, Miramar 美麗華.
The MRT stop is called Jiannan Rd. 劍南路. Right next to exit nr.1 there is a lane leading to a staircase going up to the Jiantan Temple 劍潭古寺.

This temple has an interesting history. Originally it was built at a completely different site in 1773! During Japanese occupation Japanese decided to move the temple (1923) as it was too close to the Taiwan Grand Shrine 臺灣神宮 (Taiwan Jingu), the largest Shinto shrine in Taiwan. Not long after that the shrine was demolished by Chiang Kai-shek 蔣介石 and the Grand Hotel 圓山大飯店 build on it's site (1952).

Climbing further up we got to a road which we followed for a while. Even by the roadside we found some interesting things:

A bit further down the road we entered a path going steep up…

Nasze osiedle w obiektywie trzynastolatka

W zeszłym tygodniu, gdy pogoda była prawdziwie wiosenna, wysłałam Jasia z aparatem fotograficznym na spacer po naszym górskim osiedlu. Poza Jasiem i aparatem, na spacer poszła także Ania i nasz pies, Inu.

Last week, when we still had springtime weather, I've sent Jaś out for a walk with camera and asked him to register what he saw in our community. Ania and our dog, Inu also joined Jaś and his camera for the walk.

Oto co Jaś zobaczył i zarejestrował:

This is what Jaś saw and registered on photos:

Maps lapbook - Mapy

Few months ago Jaś has finished another lapbook. This time the theme was MAPS. 
The process of making this lapbook was quite complicated and long. I don't even remember when he started gathering all the information and preparing the lapbook booklets (probably over a year ago).

We first discussed what kind of information should be put in the lapbook. 
Next Jaś found the relevant info in the books we have and on the Internet and made notes.
He used the Homeschool Share lapbook printable templates to create the booklets for all the subjects that he wanted to include in the lapbook. This took quite some time as it was the first time he was using the printable templates. He first needed to choose the most suitable booklet template, type the title and print it.
After printing the booklets with titles it was time to fill them in with information.

This is how the lapbook turned out:
