K-2 Core Curriculum - Geography: Continents and Cultures
Take a virtual journey around the world to expand your children’s understanding of the world around them. Our focus is on drawing connections between the lives of your children and the lives of children on other continents. With over 68 activities and 36 hands-on exercises, your children will learn about physical geography and landforms as well as human and animal life on each continent.
Each chapter includes multiple videos, hands-on activities, music, maps, readings, worksheets, charts, interactive websites, games, full-color high resolution graphics, and more to provide a multisensory approach to learning about life on our planet.
