Around the World Preschool: North America

Around the World North America | Happy Mom MusingsAround the World North America | Happy Mom MusingsWelcome to North America!  We started here, in the United States, because it is where we live.  We will do a more in-depth study of the States another year – when we will spend a whole year on it – but I wanted to start with a short, but solid foundation in our own country.  We then looked at Canada and Mexico, our neighbors.  I wanted to highlight one central American country and one Caribbean country, and chose Guatemala and Haiti simply because I found good picture books that are set in those countries.
