Paddle By The Sea

This semester Ambleside recommends Paddle By The Sea as the living book basis for Geography.  We just finished chapter three and it is going fairly well.

Froggy is enjoying the story even if she is not yet learning much Geography.  I suspect that will come as the story progresses.

We have a large laminated map on which we are tracing Paddle's route.  It does not look like much yet since in chapter 3 Paddle just finally launches into the water.

For right now we have set the stage showed the border between US and Canada and discussed the differences between states and provinces.

I found a cool pdf which gives a huge amount of background information on the area, culture and environment to go along with the story.  I really like because it gives me activities and extensions for the story, namely maps.
