Taj Mahal – Places of Old #2
Today we visit the Taj Mahal in India, a tourist destination for over 3 million people each year! (The book says 2.2 million, Wikipedia says 3!) Did you know that it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site? The Dewey library number/reference for this book by Kate Riggs is JR726 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.
Education.com has some FREE worksheets on Taj Mahal here. The fourth grade worksheet actually gives some extra details that are not in the book. Activity Village does not have any worksheets but does have a page with information on plus some India pages. Wikipedia also has some interesting info.
If you have an atlas, get it out and let the children find India. Older children can find Agra. Learning to use an atlas is an important skill.
