Colorful Buildings Paper Collages: Exploring Argentina Through Art

We headed to South America for stop 7 in Project: Around the World to visit Argentina. Argentina is a vast country, the second largest in South America, and there were so many fascinating things to choose for inspiration. (See Argentina on a map here.) Would it be the pampas, which are the fertile grasslands, or the Andes Mountains? Would it be the tango, the dance that originated in Argentina, or the gauchos, the native cowboy of the pampas? We ended up using a small slice of Argentine life, the colorful buildings in the neighborhood of La Boca in Buenos Aires for inspiration.

Play and Learn With a Hundred Chart

Don't think I'm crazy, but I really believe that hundred charts can be tons of fun. It's a perfect base for any number of math games. 

Why the hundred chart? Well, it's an important math tool in the elementary years. It's a map that shows number order and highlights patterns among the number. I got down to basics in my Math Homework 101: The Hundred Chart post. Check it out for the low down and to get your own printable hundred chart. 

The hundred chart is not just for school. You can use it at home in all sorts of fun ways to help your child review math. You can absolutely have fun with it and your kids will be learning a ton in the process. 

Here are some great hundred chart ideas I found on some of my favorite blogs.
