PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I am so excited to post this new set. It is a bundle of the 7 individual continents of the world. Each continent has reading comprehension passages for most of the standards, whole group practice games, interactive notebook opportunities, and projects!

The comprehension passages are color code versions. No multiple choice or writing. It is based on finding text evidence to support the answer to the given passages. There are over 300 pages to work with.

Make life easier on yourself and your kids. Give them relevant and useful learning opportunities that get them out of text books.

Here are the contents for each continent:
