KINGFISHER GEOGRAPHY ENCYCLOPEDIA

WHERE DO I PUT THESE ASSIGNMENTS IN MY SKETCHBOOK?

 

After the initial set up of the book the homework and assignments will continue with one page for homework and one page for art each week.  We should use 64 pages for all the homework and assignments if you only use 2 pages per week.  You may use 3 or 4 pages per week. There will be extra pages for any other things you want to add. We will add a new chapter page as we come to each new continent of the world.
