Great program. I covers all the continents, and does a thorough job of the topic. A black and white version would be useful. Our school can't print in colour, and the students could put the pages in their workbooks and colour the pictures. Thanks for this!!

Hello,

I never heard from you.... is there a way this can be adapted for preschool? And if not, is there a way I can get the info sheets? Thanks.....
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 2, 2014Jessica Rosace answered:
I'm sorry I must have not hit submit when I responded last time. I'm not sure if this would be appropriate for preschool. The writing portions would probably be too hard. The math might work with some of the graphing activities. I'm not sure how I could sell just the info sheets to you through TPT since it's mixed in with the unit. Sorry about the delay!

On  December 29, 2013Jessica Rosace answered:
I use it in Kindergarten late in the year. I have received feedback from second grade teachers that use the unit in their class. I would assume it could work for first grade too. The writing would definitely be appropriate i'm just not sure about the math. Hope this was helpful!
On  December 22, 2013Explore Create Discover A Teacher's Journey (TpT Seller) asked:
Hello,

I teach preschool, and we learn about many different cultures. We have taught Spanish, Chinese, and french to our students too. The activities you've included would be too hard for my class. Is there a way I could just get each page with the facts? Those would be perfect. Thanks.

Hi Jessica,
I LOVE all of your products so much! However, I noticed one minor typo when I was passing out the short answer fact sheet on Germany. One of the questions reads "What is Germany know for?" It is just a minor little typo, but I didn't want to pass it out to my students with an error! Just wanted to let you know! Thanks!

Hi there, Do you have a preview set up for your World Traveller unit? I'd like to see/know what the specifics of the response sheets look like, and whether they'd be appropriate for my 2nd grade class.
Thanks, Carrie

On  May 5, 2013Jessica Rosace answered:
Just posted a preview. The response sheets are all very similar. I think the literacy writing sheet activities might be appropriate for second grade, I'm just not sure if the math would be. Hope this was helpful. Let me know if I can do anything else.

Most likely I won't be updating it anytime soon since I just did a big update. I am going to use nonfiction books from my library when I do the continents for this unit. Sorry!
