We had a GREAT time with Roxaboxen last week (again- we already read this one- but it was requested that we re-row it before moving on to Beyond). We concentrated on the 4 corners, and learned a bit about all 4 states and their flags. We learned about the different types of rocks and played a Magic School Bus Computer game- called Inside the Earth- perfect- one of the games on it was "making" different kinds of rocks with temperature and pressure. We watched a Reading Rainbow episode on Saguaro Cactus. Learned about different Desert Animals, Watched short "movies" on some of the animals on this website http://www.desertusa.com/index.html and the funnest of all- ds built a shoebox diarama of Roxaboxen. For art, he drew a map of his version- then he had to create it inside a shoebox. Here's a picture of his. http://s2.photobucket.com/albums/y11/addean1/?action=view&current=P5040033.jpg

Thanks for the info and the pics. Dd has made a few diaramas in K. She has asked if we'll be able to do some next year - you bet, Babygirl!
