Geography Monday: Honduras



This week our travels bring us to Honduras!

Here are some things that we learned this week:

1.  Bananas are very important to the economy of Honduras.  They grow very well here with the hot, humid temperature.

2.  Bananas take 9-12 weeks to ripen.

We also added these books and DVD to our study.  You can go  HERE  to see the other books that we use.

For our adventures in Honduras, we made oven baked sweet plantains.


He cut them evenly and then we put them on a cookie sheet and sprayed them with cooking spray.  We baked them at 450 degrees turning occasionally for 10-15 minutes.


I did put honey on them also and they tasted pretty good!

Lego banana!!



Then he thought it would be a good idea to make it into a banana split!!






Stay tuned for next weeks adventures as we travel to El Salvador!





Blessings!!
