Expedition Earth - Europe - Russia

This week Luke and I made our 5th stop on our trek across the globe. We went to Russia. It was a great country to visit and we learned so many interesting things.

The first day we stamped our passports and found Russia on our map. Luke colored the map of Russia and we wrote down some key things about Russia.

Each week we look up words in each language. The language of Russia is Russian. In Russian, "Luke" is "Luka Lukey (last name)", "Hello" is "Privet", and "Thank You" is "Spasibo."

Luke colored the flag of Russia. It has three equal stripes - red, blue, and white.

He made a lapbook for Russia and put his favorite thing about Russia, that it is the largest country in the world.

We made nesting boxes, a popular thing in Russia. Here are pictures:

The most important thing we do each week is pray for the people of the country each day. We specifically prayed for missionaries, lost people, and for Christian growth.

This weekend we plan to make Russian apple pie and watch some of The Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky, a famous Russian composer.

Next Stop: United Kingdom
