Geography - Norway

Last year, for Geography, we studied various countries in Europe.  For some reason, I did not get all of our countries we studied posted here on my blog.  Recently, I have been asked if I would go back and add some of those countries. I am going to do my best to recap some of those countries, but please understand it has been awhile since we actually studied them :/

We studied Norway over a week time.  Like some of the other countries, we used My Father's World curriculum, Confessions of a Homeschooler's curriculum, and other websites to try to get a decent look at the country.

Stamped our passports
