I is for Island ~Arabella #atozchallenge

 Blogging Unit Study ideas using Five in a Row Curriculum Books from A to Z

I am joining literally hundreds of other bloggers to blog through the Alphabet in the month of April (Sunday we get a break!) with a Themed month. This is my first time joining in and I am excited for the challenge.

by Wendy Orr and Kim Gamble

 Matthew looked at the Arabella. She had tall slim masts and sails set to catch the wind, a polished wooden deck that shone like glass and a painted Lady carved on her bow. She perched on Grandpa's windowsill as if she was ready to fly - a small, perfect ship.Wendy Orr gently tells a story of flight and love - and the relationship between a boy and his grandfather. With superb illustrations by award-winning illustrator Kim Gamble, this is an enchanting story and stunning collaboration as Wendy and Kim explore with loving detail the rarest treasure of all..

 It was a little harder to find a book that went along with an I theme. Arabella is about an island so I decided that would be great for us to study islands and get into some geography.
The kids each designed their own island and we made it out of salt dough. They named it, designed how it looked, designed the government, the natural resources, money sources, trade, and more. It was a project that each of the kids could do!
