And we're off to Russia for a week or so.  We're reading chapters 17 and 26 in Story of the World, Vol 3; learning about Peter the Great and Catherine the Great.

Play Durak - a Russian card game

Make a salt dough map of Russia.  My kids love doing them and we rarely do. 
2 parts flour
1 part salt
1 part water. 

Put an outline map onto cardboard, and use a physical map as a reference to form the country.  When it dries in a day or so, then paint it.

Cook Russian food.

Print out a map of the polar regions; color, talk about arctic circle and why Peter the Great needed to find a warm water route to the west.
