I don't understand but, if you knew me, that wouldn't surprise you! We are doing year 1 (just started, in fact) and I don't understand what to do with the MapAids. I thought there would be something in the TOG program that explains this but, if there is, I can't find it. We started with week 4 since I have a young LG child who hasn't had any history before so I wanted to start with creation. Soooo....the map on MapAids is called the Descendants of Noah and it shows a map of the area with 2 stars. The answer map has those "stars" labeled, along with quite a bit of other parts of the map labeled. HOWEVER, the geography section of the TOG curriculum has nothing to do with any of these locations - it has to do with Pangea and the possible original appearance of the earth's land. Are there questions I am supposed to ask the kids that would prompt them to label the map? Is there a list of locations they should locate in the TOG curriculum (like the vocab and timeline lists, for instance)? Is it somewhere on the Loom? I thought that maybe it wasn't in the curriculum since it is an "extra" but I would have thought there would be some instruction on the MapAid disc itself! There is so much to look at that I very well may be missing it but I really can't locate what to do. Thanks for helping!
