I bought a series of National Geographic books for kids. This was one of the books we read recently. Thanks to this book, Sonshine boy learnt about port, shipping goods from a country to another etc.
Just for fun, i prepared this little game for him. Since we don't have boat toys at home (how strange!), i used paper to fold make shift boats. I put some lego pieces in each boat. We pretended that the lego pieces were containers holding goods like toys, clothes etc. I took out our flag flashcard just to represent the country. We 'shipped
the 'containers' (lego pieces) from USA to Malaysia etc.
The lego man was used to represent the people in a country receiving the goods. :)
