Country Day: England

We are back to celebrate the country of England. Check out these links to our past posts about Africa, Russia, and France. Then enjoy these fun activities for learning about the beautiful country of England. I spent six months living in England as a college student and fell in love with the culture and people. My favorite thing to do was take the Tube to one of the many incredible museums in London and then picnic along the Thames. I even fed the pigeons in Trafalgar Square and once fell off a red Double Decker Bus. I am excited to share my memories of England with my children.
