I LOVE the missionary outlook of your study.

I have a copy of the Africa unit study that you wrote and I want to commend you. I LOVE the missionary outlook of your study.
The girls and I are SO very excited to begin your book next week! It will be extremely difficult finding studies on other continents that compares to Africa, A Land of Hope! It SETS the bar.

Pretend Passport Printable

passport

Pretend passports are perfect for a virtual travel record!

Plan a Geography Fair. Choose a country to present – make a short presentation such as a folk dance, a song, or poem, or set up a display which may include maps, pictures, projects, a country stamp or sticker for passports, and an international food sample enough for all in attendance. Children receive play passports and go to each station for country stamps (or stickers). They should record 2-4 facts they learn about each country in their passport.
Record places in stories in your passport. Whenever you read a story set in a world location, or study another culture, put a sticker or stamp in your passport for a record of all the places you’ve virtually visited.
