A Fun Weekend Project for Madeline

I found this cool Eiffel Tower puzzle/model online and thought it would be a perfect father and son project to go along with Madeline. I read the boys some facts about the Eiffel Tower (I love Wikipedia and our iPad!) while they constructed.

We’ve been talking about symmetry this week, as we read Madeline and have been having lots of fun with it.

He created an example of a symmetrical design.

Using a marker, we placed the line of symmetry on his design.

This week we’re starting our new Five in a Row book, Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans. This is the first Five in a Row book that we have actually read and loved prior to rowing it for school. Elliot was really excited to finally get to this one! While reading it, we’re going to also be learning about France, the human body, and in math I’m going to introduce the concept of symmetry.
