My blog buddy Erica over at Confessions of a Homeschooler has done it again! First, she created her Letter of the Week Preschool Curriculum, which is awesome! Now, she has created a complete world geography curriculum called Expedition Earth: A Journey Through God’s World!
If you have seen any of her Letter of the Week curriculum, you KNOW that Erica is very thorough with what she does. Well, the geography curriculum is that and alot more! When I got the download and began to look through it, my brain totally started reeling! I began to plan for our 2011-2012 school year when we will be studying world geography…and we haven’t even started the 2010-2011 school year! To say that I am excited about this curriculum is a complete understatement!
Expedition Earth covers 31 countries and is designed for grades K-3. The download is 160+ pages! (I told you Erica is thorough!!!) Each country comes with a week long Lesson plan. Activities and topics include:
7 Wonders of the World
Science: Ecosystems Study
People of the Region
How to Pray for the Regions
Christmas around the world
Children like me
Science: Animals mini-books for each country
Science: Animal Classification Study
Children Like Me Report
Food and recipes
Fun activities, games, and more!!!
What I really love is how she includes crafts!!! If you keep up with my blog, you know we LOVE crafts! Plus, I love how she incorporates praying for each of the countries! I feel that you become more interested in what you are learning when you are pouring your heart into it. What a great way to pour your heart into the countries by praying for them as you study and learn about them! An added bonus is that everything is all laid out…with lists!!! I LOVE lists and I make them ALL.THE.TIME!!! This way, I know what craft supplies I will need and I know what books I need to get from the library or purchase!
ALL of this in included for only $15! I have paid ALOT more for curricula that doesn’t begin to include as much information as Expedition Earth! So, needless to say, Erica’s is practically giving this away! Once you get the download, you will COMPLETELY understand what I am talking about!!!
Erica has graciously agreed to give away a copy of the Expedition Earth to one of my readers! But, if you can’t wait to see if you win, head on over and purchase the Expedition Earth: A Journey Into God’s World!
I almost forgot!!!! As an added bonus, you can download Erica’s Expedition Earth: Discovering God’s Animals to go along with the curriculum for free!!! PLUS, Maureen at Spell Outloud has created a Continent Hopscotch Game (also free) to go along with the curriculum!
