I started with Europe evan moor kindergarten pdf 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!
I have no real plan with these, just a fun way to expose my kids to cultures, countries, and world geography in general. Here’s a post from one of my favorite blogs all about continent boxes. I would need bigger ones for continents with more stuff! I made simple labels that color-coordinate with Montessori geography colors.
This box is the smaller of the 2 sizes I bought. Eventually I may have to upgrade to all large, but for now this one works! MANY materials from Montessori Print Shop! Thankfully I was given their bundle to review last year, I have had many of the country printables printed for many, many months, just now getting around to cutting and laminating! For the 3 part cards, I decided to save laminating and cutting time and mounted mine in file folders. I laminated the matching images and words so the kids can just lay them on top of the file folder.
So I didn’t want to waste lots of time cutting and laminating! I just know my kids won’t use these tons, visit my Pinterest boards for even more ideas! Eventually I may have to upgrade to all large, 48 Contiguous States worksheet, just leave me a comment and I will do my best to answer! You may download the latest version of the free Adobe Reader here. Word Search 2, she will be using a combination of resources with a focus on United States geography.
I used tape for this one, but it’s ugly, so I might do something different with my next country. I just know my kids won’t use these tons, so I didn’t want to waste lots of time cutting and laminating! I searched online to find a map that was colorful and labeled, to print and laminate for the box, my favorite ended up being this one. I also found a blank map that we can color in together, it is from here. Here you can see us exploring together, there’s no real plan.
The kids can explore the box on their own, and I also am taking time to explore together. You can download printables and see more on our Continent Boxes webpage! Obviously apps aren’t for the box, but more for extending the learning outside of the box! Here’s our favorite European geography app! They have a lite version too.
