This course will use the Around the World with Picture Books geography program from Beautiful Feet Books. This is far more than a geography class though! Students will study art, architecture, food, literature, history, music and more through picture books and classroom activities. This is the closest your children will get to having a memorable experience of other countries without actually getting on a plane.
From the Beautiful Feet Books website:
Travel the world through delightful children’s picture books! Introduce your K-3rd children to world geography and culture with award-winning literature. Part One covers Asia, Africa, Australia, and Antarctica. In Asia we explore China, Japan, Thailand, and India. In Africa we visit Morocco, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, and Ghana. This course includes nature study, folktales, fables, music, art, poetry, and history.
Gentle Socratic questions are designed to prompt discussion and discovery. Geographic elements include country maps and flags for children to cut out, paint or color, encouraging journaling of all they are learning. Beautiful drawings of indigenous animals are also included which will familiarize students with some remarkable creatures, their habitat and habits, cultivating respect and wonder for the natural world.
