Due to the amount of time it took to complete, I am charging a fee for the curriculum, however I will also be sharing our journey on this blog as we travel through each country. But if any of you are like me, you’ll want it before you start the year so you can prepare, so without further ado….here’s the details!
So what is Expedition Earth: A Journey Through God’s World?
Expedition Earth is a geography unit study that covers 31 countries across the world. It is designed primarily for K-3 students. I am going to do this with my prek, 1st, and 2nd graders together. I won’t expect my prek to do reports, but she should be able to learn the country names, songs, languages, pray and do all the fun crafts and recipe activities I have planned!
The curriculum has 164 pages of fun activities and even includes a Craft Supply Shopping List for each country just to make your life a little easier!
Each country comes with a Monday – Friday Lesson plan that includes mapping, country flags, ecosystems, People, animals, recipes, crafts and more!
  • 7 Wonders of the World
  • Geographical Location
  • Science: Ecosystems Study
  • Geography Vocabulary
  • People of the Region
  • How to Pray for the Regions
  • Christmas around the world
  • Children like me
  • Science: Animals mini-books for each country
  • Science: Animal Classification Study
  • Food and recipes
  • Craft activities
  • Country Songs
  • Fun activities and games
Language study: Each country comes with a fun flashcard to help you learn how to say “hello” in the main language of the country!
Additional activities for older students:Depending on the age of your student you may want some additional challenge. I have created 5 reports that your student can complete depending on interest or skill level.
  • Country Report
  • Continent Report
  • Animal Report
  • Ecosystem Report
  • Children Like Me Report
Printable Passport: No world wide expedition would be complete without a fun souvenir for the students! Expedition Earth comes with a fun printable passport that you can use to stamp for each country visited. I suggest world flag stickers in the Resources List, however I have also included printable flags that can be glued on as well.

Book Basket: I suggest visiting your local library or doing an internet search for countries that interest your child. They can use the book basket during their free reading time for a fun educational experience! There is an additional reading resource section to help with the book basket.
