The Writing Around the World series is perfect for combining English, literature, and writing skills with geography and world cultures.
Netherlands (home of famous painters Rembrandt and Van Gogh) focuses on learning to write a descriptive paragraph and to paint with our words. In this writing exercise, students will answer sensory questions and learn about the literary techniques of simile, metaphor, personification, and onomatopoeia.
As a homeschool mom of 7 children, I understand the challenges in teaching multiples ages at once. There is an alternate activity for younger writers and little learners to help them discover adjectives and descriptive writing.
We use this writing program in conjunction with Masterbook's Geography curriculum and Passport to the World, however anyone studying the Netherlands can use these worksheets for writing practice.
