Korea Study: Week 1

We really are having a fun time this year with our geography study and learning together, which always makes it fun! We looked at North and South Korea this week, although the majority of our studies were focused on South Korea.  

  • located and mapped the Koreas
  • reviewed our Asia area song
  • colored the South Korean flag
  • independent reading {see carousel below} Laurianna is reading Seesaw Girl by Linda Sue Park and McKenna is reading Dear Juno by Soyung Pak. Together we are reading aloud the story Archer's Quest (mainly so that I can moderate some of the content).
  • read about Bob Pierce (missionary)
  • did our Children Just Like me sheet
  • independent reading {see carousel below}
  • toured Korea via a kid's website (links are below), and learned a little more about Buddhism and different Korean temples
  • tryied out orgami and making panda bear faces...a little something we didn't have time to fit in last week.
  • talked about Buddhism
  • looked at different Korean temples
Web Resources

Here are some great links for Korea:
  • The Wedding of Kaz and Ilsu - this site documents the wedding of the site author (Kaz) and his trip to Korea for his wedding and honeymoon. There are some great photos on the site to look at various Korean temples and culture shots.
  • World Heritage Tour - provides 360 degree pics and views of different Korean temples and sites.
  • Our Place - pictures of the Sokkuram Groto and Pulguksa Temple.
  • Korea for Kids - has a virtual "tour" of South Korea and includes some fun printable activities for kids (Hahoe mask drama, acrostic poems and kimchi pots).
  • South Korea Unit Study - Knowledge Quest has some great ideas posted at this link for South Korea also.
Books We Used


Next week we are continuing on in South Korea by looking at Korean currency, Kimchi pots, Hahoe mask drama, making a yummy meal of beef tips and rice, and studying Korean numbers as well as making our own acrostic.

  • Both of my children are adopted from South Korea. If you have any questions maybe we can help you! If you look on our blog under hanbok you can see tradition Korean clothes. I also have Korean coloring pages and copies of money if you are interested.
