We read many facts about Trasportation and learnt many new things masha Allaah from the Encyclopedia and some good books we had on the topic. We learnt that Allaah has blessed us with modes and means of transportation and we should only use it for good things to earn the pleasure of Allaah!
We also watched a power point presentation on Land Sea and Air modes of transportation.
We read this nice book about different kind of vehicles with beautiful pictures and illustrations!
Alhamdulillaah this week we were blessed to have the mini work book, and Maimoonah was excited too. And sis Umm An Nu'man has indeed made it so child friendly with variety of interesting activities. May Allaah bless her.
So we read and learnt about the Hijrah of the Prophet and about Prophet's Camel Al Qaswa. This was easy for Maimoonah to teach as she has seen the dunes, travelled on the Camel here and seen the desert, masha Allaah!

Since we studied about Camels used by the Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu alaihiwassalam and the sahabahs during the days of Islaam we did this set of nice easy worksheets which I got from here.
