Chester and Geography!

Don't you love Pinterest?  Well, the other day I was reminded of Chester the Worldly Pig  by Mrs. Madden's Movie Stars.

I've never read it or done the map but I got really excited about the idea and decided to go for it since we've been hard core practicing the continents and oceans.  I just found a pig through Google images and blew it up, then copied it on pink paper and, voila!  Chester!  I printed up some continents and labels and we went to work.

My kids liked the book a lot and making the map was a great review and even a perfect informal assessment for me to see whether they were truly ready.  I think they'll nail the test tomorrow!
