Haitian Market Art

Let's Go Geography is our homeschool geography curriculum this year. We are working through Year 1 Semester 1 Lessons. This curriculum was developed by Carol Henderson. It is suitable for children in K-4th grade.

My daughter (Age 9) is having a blast learning about many different countries around the world. She is currently in 4th grade and says it is her favorite curriculum right now. She looks forward to the lessons.

We recently studied Haiti. Alyssa loved the featured craft. Check out the final project and directions below. You could do this with any image.

1.) Print the image using the link provided in the curriculum.
2.) Color the image with crayons making sure to press down hard.
3.) Trim around the edge of the coloring page.
4.) Paint over the image using watered-down BLACK watercolor paint.
5.) Dry overnight.
6.) Glue to a brightly colored sheet of paper.
7.) Write "Haiti" at the top of the page.
8.) Done! :)
