I thought it would be fun to do a summer module on the Laura Ingalls Wilder book, Little House on the Prairie. We went to the library for books on prairie dogs, Native Americans, pioneers, and the like, and launched into Laura’s world of waving prairie grasses and endless skies. In our reading today, Laura’s family came down with “fever-n-ague,” aka: malaria. After reading the story, we read about malaria from one of our library books. I had The Boy and Beanie write about malaria, and Lemony insisted that she needed to write about it too. As you can tell from the pictures below, we need to work on reading comprehension a little bit this year.
