Oh man, it’s just hard to wake up early for school on Mondays when you have just gotten used to sleeping in all weekend! Oh well, at least I have an awesome teacher. She started this thing last week called Mapping Mondays to help us learn continents and countries.
This is what she does: she gives everyone in the class a blank sheet of paper and then gives us the name of a country or continent and we have to draw it. The person who ends up with the closest drawing gets a point. At the end of the year, she said the person with the most points gets a prize. My parents got me a cool laminated map to help me study for this.
Here is a pic of the country I drew last week. Can you tell which one it is?
Because of this I have discovered how much I love maps! They can tell you SO much about a country and the people that live there, just by where it’s located, or how mountainous it is, stuff like that.
Well, my homework is waiting for me!
