Galloping the Globe

Creative and filled with ideas for traveling the world in your studies, Galloping the Globe is a unit study for kindergarten through fourth grade. Focusing on the seven continents and some specific countries, this study is designed to take 1-3 years to complete; suggested schedules are included. Integrating geography, Bible, history, science, literature, and maps & flags, children will discover the famous people from each country as well as holidays and other cultural traditions. Each country has a checklist with books to read from the core reading list as well as individual picture books, biographies, websites to visit, language arts selections, appropriate Bible references and activities unique to each portion of the world. Employing a notebooking approach, students build a notebook as they progress throughout the course. The CD-ROM includes all of the activity sheets, maps, and flags that are in the book, as well as other bonus notebooking pages. Mac and PC compatible. Maps, reports, flags, and activity pages are reproducible. 266 pages, indexed. Answer key included. Grades K-4. Softcover.

Well-known countries such as France and Italy were much easier in this book than some others. All subjects for well-known countries are right in the book. For the lesser-known countries, you have to go online or find the info in the library. It's a fun book to use. I also used this for a missionary-based junior church curriculum for several years. It covers science, literature, cooking, history, geography, art and music for the most part for most countries.

This was just fun for all ages grade K-3. Learning should be fun. As the instructor/mom it was nice to be able to do dig in deeper for certain things, yet go lighter in other areas as needed per child and per season.

We loved learning about other countries through this book. My boys especially loved coloring the flags and then looking at kids from other countries in the recommended companion book - "Children Like Us".
