A Tour of the United Kingdom

We have been touring the United Kingdom these last few weeks and we are coming to the end of our journey. This week we are wrapping up our tour with Bangers and Mash. (It's a meal that the English enjoy.) Puzzle piecing and the Great Peregrine Falcon.

We then move on to Ireland where we will learn how to make Irish Soda Farl.
Then on to Scotland where we will meet Sherlock Holmes and a fascinating Sea Bird called the Puffin...
We also will be trying our hand at this game!
There is so much information in the Amanda Bennett Unit Studies I only touched on a snippet of all that there is to discover!  And the price is really reasonable! The virtual Tours that are included are wonderful! If your looking for a detour away from the daily grind of work books, this is a must!

After we wrap up our tour of Europe we are moving onto the Thanks Giving Unit Study by Amanda Bennett. We already started reading this book and the kids were intrigued with in the first couple of pages. Helen Taylor took John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress and simplified it for young readers. It is wonderful! Little man begged for more......but I always leave them wanting more, until tomorrow!


  1. I live in England - how cute that you are studying the country. I hope you found it interesting!

  2. We do! There is so much History! So many Great things and people have come from England! What a small little world we live in! ;)
