Expedition Earth

We are planning a trip to Disney World in a couple of months, which we are very excited about!  Before we go I thought it would be fun to do a little study of each of the 11 countries we will see while visiting Epcot.  So, we started using Expedition Earth since it covers 10 of the 11 countries.

The first week we just did a brief study of the continents.

We started out playing a little “Continent Hop,” which both kids loved!

After we read “Me on the Map” by Joan Sweeney, Hailey worked on her own book that goes along with it.  It really helps to understand where we are in relation to the world.  It’s currently free on Curriclick.

Hailey’s favorite activity was making the continents using salt dough.

We put wax paper down on the table, then put printables of the continents underneath the wax paper so that Hailey could easily get the shape of the continents correct.

Then we painted the continents green.

We had so much fun our first week using Expedition Earth!!
