Travel the World - South America

This year, my Kindergartner is learning about the world, one continent at a time. On this journey around the world, our first stop was North America, mainly because we live here, and our second stop was South America! I must confess to not having as many activities prepared and ready for him, but those which we did complete were fun and informative.
