Topic Work The Netherlands – Part 5

holland-houses

The Dutch used the water surrounding most of their country to their advantage.

Just like people live in houses on land those who were adventurous enough started living on the sea in boat houses.

Others actually had their houses built touching the water.  The children saw some pictures of such houses. They also watched a sweet story of a cat whose lifestyle changed because at first he lived in a house on land than started living in a boat house!   🙂

Cosmo the Boat Cat:

We discussed the story and sequenced some pictures too.

This led us to the third letter for this week, letter b for boathouse.  More details found in the literacy blog.
