I had never heard of Madeline before this month, but quickly found out she’s a well-known gal! Even my husband knows of her. 🙂 So today we started Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans, with our Social Studies day.

Kicked off of course by reading the book, then learning about France, Paris, Eiffel Tower and other famous Paris Landmarks, as drawn in the book. Located France in Europe on the globes, maps and Google Earth. Colored the 3 stripes of France’s flag – blue, white, and red.
