Israel for Kids: Week 1

This week we started a 2-week study of Israel. Here's a little peek into what we've been talking about:

  • Locate and map Israel
  • Talked about the geography/terrain of Israel
  • Learn new geography song {Middle East} using Geography Songs
  • Read Children Just Like Me pages and completed the notebooking page
  • Learned about Israel's flag and colored it
  • Talked about prayer shawls (since the design of Israel's flagis based on a prayer shawl). The prayer shawl (or tallis/tallit) is a religious symbol, a garment - a sacred and important part of the Jewish life.
  • Learned about the currency of Israel {click on thumbnail below to download the pdf file}
