This is what I will be starting my "Travel the World" unit before we "travel" to other countries.
The students will insert pages into their science/social studies journals (my students have one journal for both) of information for each continent as well as our solar system. There is also a page for each continent with images for the students to color along with a continent map for them to color the key and corresponding country within that continent.
This is a huge unit that will take a couple weeks to complete.
I plan on supplementing this unit with non fiction text about teach continent as well as youtube videos and songs to represent the broad range of cultures in each continent.
You could also teach this year round and study a continent a month. Check out my blog:
traveltheworldinsecondgrade.weebly.com and my Reading Around the World post. There are tons of resources of books written about a certain culture/country that should be used with this unit.
This unit ALSO has the Smart Notebook file of each page of the interactive notebook for you to show and fill in with your students.
I hope you enjoy this unit! Please remember to leave a review!
