I recently purchased this book, Water Land: Land and Water Forms Around the World by Christy Hale, after seeing it on Instagram. It’s a beautiful, simple book which very creatively makes comparisons between water and landforms. It was an instant hit with Ethan who is 5.5.
Ethan is very interested in maps, different landforms and any kind of water so I thought this book would be a jumping off point for a more in-depth study. I purchased the following books to help our study along:
The Pond by Jim LaMarche
The Raft by Jim LaMarche (I have yet to be able to read this beautiful book without crying. What a great story!)
The Little Island by Margaret Wise Brown
As we move forward I plan to add kinetic sand and water with blue food coloring to our sensory table for him to explore.
I’ve also downloaded these 3 part cards from The Helpful Garden to help us learn the land and water form vocabulary. There were many great 3 part cards available for free download on the site.
If you follow us on Instagram, I plan to share more of our land and water study there.
