A while ago, I read someone’s blog post about how they were reading one of The Magic Tree House books and tying it into what they were learning for the moment.  This gave me an idea to use this series for an almost complete curriculum.
The books are great for science, history, language arts and social studies.

We just finished Afternoon on the Amazon which was rich with details about the rain forest.  To add to this story we checked out books about poison dart frogs, pythons, crocodiles and the rain forest.
We looked up the Amazon river on the map and made beautiful rain forest pictures.  Today we will take a visit to a local exotic pet store in hopes to see a few frogs, etc.

It is my hope to post regularly about what we are doing at home, learning wise.  From now one I will introduce these books by title only and may use TMTH to shorten the title.
