Continent Boxes ~ Europe

Finally I am getting started! I started with Europe since the Olympics are in London, and since our next Little Passports country is France! You always get some little things with each Little Passports month, which I will add to the continent box! These are works in progress, I even have a wishlist of books and things I want to add to this and other boxes! We will use these boxes for years and years! I have no real plan with these, just a fun way to expose my kids to cultures, countries, and world geography in general. For now, I have our Europe set up like this {see photo below}. I bought my boxes from Walmart, in 2 different sizes {small 6.7qt, large 12.7qt} knowing I would need bigger ones for continents with more stuff! MANY materials from Montessori Print Shop! For the 3 part cards, I decided to save laminating and cutting time and mounted mine in file folders. World Facts & Landmarks Flashcards {Rand McNally} Continent Boxes.

Continent Boxes on Pinterest. Using the Web to Take Virtual Field Trips. By: Kennedy Schultz Helping kids learn about the world can be an exciting adventure for both adults and kids.

Using the Web to Take Virtual Field Trips

When I teach about the chateaux of the Loire Valley in France or ancient Mayan sites in Mexico, I’m always looking for kid-friendly resources that can provide accurate information and engaging authentic pictures that hold the attention of little ones. Virtual Field Trips Since my field trip budget is pretty limited, I especially love websites that offer virtual tours and live webcams to show kids what it REALLY looks like in another world location. Many famous museums such as the Louvre offer 360 degree tours of their collections. Live web cams are another great cultural resource. We have also found web cams of the storks roosting on roof tops in Rust, Austria, and have shared our own local webcams of Niagara Falls with our pen-pal classrooms in other countries to give them an idea of our region.

Geo-literacy world map activities for kids

Geo-literacy world map activities for kids Our favourite new toy is a big world map. We picked it up in a local bookstore (but you can find plenty online) and have been using it ever since to play a variety of ‘get to know the world’ map games. My daughter is very interested in the world and maps at the moment. Some activities she has been enjoying are: :: learning about different biomes, through researching information books, following a Minecraft Homeschool course, watching videos from around the world (such as from the Grand Canyon Park Rangers talks) :: taking maps with us when we head out on local walks, and being in charge or tracking our route and finding the way: looking for landmarks and locating them on the map and seeing how the cartography displays them.

Quick fire quiz: who lives where? Another fun way we are using our map is by playing quick-fire quizzes. Quick Quiz Map Game.
