The “Children Around the World” Guide
The “Children Around the World” Guide schedules a variety of resources designed to take your kids inside thirty different countries during the year. The schedule is based on a 4-day week, which leaves one day free for extracurricular studies, field trips, co-op, doctor appointments, or whatever else in your “real life.”
You’ll love the clear weekly schedules and helps in this guide. The guide also includes activity ideas, advice on teaching and grading student work using Charlotte Mason ideals, website links, as well as a rating system and supply lists for activities and experiments.
This guide pulls together the resources to study 1-2 countries per week. Students will travel briefly through the country’s history, then take a look at its geography. At the same time, they’ll discover the country’s traditions and culture through many different resources in fun and interesting ways that reach out to all kinds of learners. Other resources show the challenges faced by children in less privileged countries, and how your kids can be aware of, and serve their needs even now. The “Children Around the World” themed program is designed to be a blessing to your family and bring the world to you!
