Unplug your kids #5---
This week for the unplug your kids project, the theme was --"Thankful". So unsure of what to do, we started by asking the boys what they were thankful for. Gabe was thankful for a bunch of different things. We decided for him it would be best to go and gather up his things that he felt represented what he was thankful for. When he finished he came to me and said that was done and very creative. LOL. So we took a picture of his Toys, brother, and himself (because he is thankful to have himself. Very cute).

When we asked our seven year old Sam what he was thankful for he said books, water, maps, communication. We asked him how he could show people that and this is what he came up with.
It is a little Island with a family on it. The lizard is drinking the water. Their is a little boy reading a book. Parents looking at a map. Then the SOS represents the communication. Make sure to check out the other postings on Unplug your kids.

LOL! That is so cute that Gabe is thankful for himself! Sam did such a nice job on his project! I love his list of things he is thankful for!

Your boys are a little older than mine and it is fun for me to see what they come up with. What a great job they did!

Those are great! I love how the little Gabe is thankful for himself and his brother (plus his toys of course). Really cute!

And Sam did a wonderful job! Very smart. His little scene really does express all those things in a very logical way. Impressive!

Thanks again for joining in! Hope to see what Sam and Gabe do next week!

Well done Gabe and Sam! I am very impressed with Sam's creation, it's apparent he has put a lot of thought and expression into that. Well done!

I'm really interested in the interest in maps. They are just unbelievably rich in mathematics content (especially contour maps for integers). I like this; good job!
