Monday is our time to pick a country to pray for and learn some facts about it. Homeschoolers take turn to randomly point their finger on the globe with closed eyes. Then we discuss what comes to mind when we hear the name of that particular country. Then comes the guessing game first on population, color of the flag, currency and majority religion before we check the book 'Flags of the World' to see who got the right guess. It's always a tough competition! We do this regularly but it seems to be always a fresh fun each time we do it. Every student is assigned to pray for the children, family, school and government of the chosen country. And today, we prayed for Madagascar. Would you believe that they wanted to pray for Alex, one of the animal character in the movie Madagascar?!
We had a bonus in our Geography today. Since I served them fruit tea from Germany, we also discussed a bit about that country.
Here are some flashback photos. Notice how they grow up doing this.
