Okay so my son has to learn all about Canada for Social studies so I am going to get him to do a project (lap book if I can remember how to make them you know that thing with folders)

For each Province and Territroy (spelt right of course I am just exhausted) to show each Flower, Animal, Capital, some fun facts about it, some fun "must sees or must eats or must dos"

What do you think...then have him map it out (will count for his mapping skills too)

Is that going over board??

Not at all too much, it's an awesome plan.   Lap books are fun.

Also remember to pay attention to the regions geographically.   Like how much of the population lives on the lower what 1/3 or 1/4th of candada and what life would be like in the upper regions... in the extreme cold.

My kids have enjoyed actual pictures of canada.   For example, we found a picture of a barn that is built into a hill because it keeps the animals warmer and is easier to keep from freezing during the cold season.

I don't think so.  We're also doing lapbooking for our History/Social Studies (United States for us) this year.  My children enjoy the fact it's more engaging and hands on than a boring text book and workbook.
