My boys and I just began a Beautiful Feet Geography curriculum called Paddle to the Sea. We read the first three chapters today and tonight my husband is enjoying helping the boys with some detail work on their maps. I think it is going to be a fun unit study and a different way to learn geography. This story begins with a young Indian boy who wishes he could see more of the world. Since he cannot leave for his own canoe adventure, he carves a little canoe with a figure inside and names him Paddle-to-the-Sea. Paddle’s journey, in text and pictures, through the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean provides an excellent geographic and historical picture of the region. If you purchase the maps…or make up your own you can follow Paddle-to-the-Sea and learn your geography while enjoying the adventure.
To my delight I just discovered a movie made years ago that tells the story of paddle to the sea!!! I’m looking forward to watching this with my family. Blessings, Anne
Don’t forget to turn off the website music before beginning the film 😉
