I am still in the homeschool planning mode. One thing we will be doing this year is geography. I’ve downloaded Expedition Earth from Erica at Confessions of a Homeschooler, and am working on getting our binder and materials ready. I’ll be pulling materials from various sources to make this a full year unit but using Erica’s plans as the bulk of the unit. She has everything laid out so nicely and I love the animal addition! I will have a review up in the next week or so. (You can see my resource list in my previous post: Geography Resources)
Since I will be teaching young ones too, I wanted to come up with some active activities for them so that they can have their own geography fun. I came up with “The Continent Hop” that I thought preschoolers/K would enjoy. There is a poem to help memorize the names of the continents and also little game where students hop to the continent called out. I hope that you find this useful! I’ll have to post pictures once the kiddos use this.
Optional version for this game:
Spread out the continent sheets on the floor. Have one child throw an inflatable globe up in the air. Whatever continent his right hand is on, then everyone has to jump to that continent.
