    Marco Polo Books

    Monday, October 12th, 2015


    My boys favorites are the “You wouldn’t want to explore with Marco Polo!”, “Following the Trail of Marco Polo(Geronimo Stilton)”, “Dragon of the Red Dawn”, “The Adventures of Marco Polo.”

    I tried to get them into “Looking for Marco Polo” but neither of the boys got into it and they both said it was boring…

    A Treasure Hunt!

    Friday, October 19th, 2012

    I was supposed to get this done last month when we were studying explorers…

    Better late then never, right?

    I had grand plans on putting together an elaborate treasure hunt for them but in reality I just woke up and wrote out directions.

    I knew it was either now or never.

    They had to know how to use a compass and what direction the sun sets and rises.

    We have an animal tracks kit.

    I wanted to use the little  footprints that came with it to make them in the ground but none of the footprints were showing up in our dirt.

    I just laid it on top and gave up…

    They still got it and enjoyed it so no big deal!

    They found the treasure!

    Yes, it is chocolate.

    I find treasure and chocolate to be pretty much the same thing…

    Don’t worry I kept some back for myself before putting it in the treasure box.
