Firstborn is in Geography this year. She got to choose a country about which to prepare a presentation. Any guesses why she chose this one?
She and her partner did such a creative, cute project. They drew themselves as Asians draw cartoons (her Korean friend with dark hair, Firstborn with light hair), she added several of the 'fines' so famous in Singapore, and she used all her Singaporean money and explained the denominations and what it would amount to in USD's. A beautiful project that represented her birth country!
I had my third graders "grade" each project as we study World Geography in third grade, too. They had to write their favorite parts of each. One wrote, "I love the Mermaid Lions." ha! I hope Firstborn can go back to see the Merlions again one day.
