Story Time Around the World - week 3

I was hesitant to go to story time this week.  It started raining Thursday night and hadn't stopped by the time we needed to leave.  After 3 days of staying home and Justin being out of town for the whole week, I was ready to get out and do something.  I grabbed my umbrella and we headed to Longview.  When we got there I was checking out some new toys in the store and Claire started tuggingon my shirt, letting me know it was starting.  I was surprised that she even wanted to participate.  The first two weeks she only wanted to play in the toy store.  Anyways, we took our seats and learned about Europe!
This was how excited Claire was to learn where Europe is locatedon the globe!
These are a couple of the books that were read.  The first was a "Madeline" book. 

They passed around some money from Denmark, and apparantly Legos are made (or orginated?) in Denmark

Another parachute activity
The last story read was about an old Italian womam who made pasta, so the crafty activity was stringing dyed rigatoni noodles onto yarn to make a necklace.  Claire was really into this.  She was concentrating pretty hard.
She was pretty darn proud of that necklace!

The main commodities were bronze tools forged out of tin and copper, which through the development of techniques and enhanced quality were now much souglit-after. Cheap Jordan Shoes,Most of the trading towns were concentrated in the north and northwest of the country, and its central plains, and as such the areas became wealthy. New towns were built and existing communities were rewarded with infrastructures of the like never before seen. In present-day Amman and Irbid, then two communities that became centres of trade, huge fortifications were built to protect the now wealthy communities from attack. In the nearby ancient town of Tabaqat Fahl, known as Pella, the bastions were said to be some of the most formidable ever seen in the region at the time. Jordans Shoes,While all this activity was going on in north and central Jordan however, the south remained largely untouched by the new wave of commercialism. Its people, the Shasu, continued to live a nomadic existence.

Remains from Chalcolithic and Bronze Age periods are still visible today. Two of the best are at Tulaylat al-Ghassul, near the Dead Sea, and at nearby Bab adh Dhra. At Tulaylat al-Ghassul you can visit the Chalcolithic archaeological site just outside town, and clearly see how homes made of mud bricks dried by the sun would have been positioned around courtyards. At Bab adh Dhra, thousands of tombs dated to the era and containing personal items like jewellery and, of course, authentic jordans,bones were unearthed during excavation works. The site is still being excavated today and more finds are expected. Amman, Irbid and Pella also all have remains from the era.
