Machu Picchu – Places of Old #3
Off to Machu Picchu in Peru, a place I have wanted to visit for a long time! I can make do with pictures though 🙂 Like Taj Mahal this is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site The Dewey library number/reference for this book by Kate Riggs is JR985.37 RIG.
The ‘Places of Old’ books by Kate Riggs are easy to read, encourage curiosity and have full colored photos on every page. Although Caleb did not do the harder worksheet that I am sharing with you, he was old enough (4) to listen to the book. You can purchase these books from Amazon but because they are only available in hardback they are quite expensive so I recommend getting them from your library. If you are not able to find this particular book grab a different one!
I found three interesting videos which we all enjoyed:
- The History Channel – this one shows some fighting with spears etc.
- National Geographic
- You Tube – camera man is talking to a llama plus listening to a Peruvian sing.
All these links were correct at time of posting but parents PLEASE check them out before watching them with your kids in case anything has changed!
Kids Discover is another interesting link and also shows some of the native people and what they wear.
If you have an atlas, get it out and let the children find Peru.
Another adVENTURE of FREE, fun learning
