Weeks 15 and 16 of school we learned about central Asia (Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan) using Layers of Learning, year 3 unit 10. We did both week’s worth of lesson in one week so we could have an extra week of Christmas vacation.
We found the three countries on the big map on the wall.
We made launch pads for a space shuttle.
We colored the Turkmenistan flag.
We tried a drink made of plain yogurt, water, salt, and mint extract. And by we, I mean Fritz, my mother, and me. The other two boys refused to even take a sip. It was gross.
We watched several YouTube videos about life in Uzbekistan.
We did mapwork.
We had Palov for dinner (it was really good!).
