Remembering Asia

North and South America

Antarctica England

Asia Africa Australia

How did you remember the continents when you were a kid?

My girls were assigned (in their two-day enrichment program) the task of creating a mnemonic device for remembering the continents. I liked Sara's approach. Technically, she didn't really do the assignment.

Ah, but she did. And creatively so.

(But, oops, she wrote England instead of Europe! Back to the drawing board. :)

This kinds of creativity should never be stifled.

I love what's captured in the fluid lines.

Okay, wow! The first drawing made me think of The Little Prince. These are phenomenal. Our whole family combined doesn't have that much talent, and she's 12.
Wow.
