Drawing Around the World: Europe is the first book in The Geography Drawing Series. This text is designed to teach children to draw, from memory, large sections of the globe. In Drawing Around the World: Europe, students learn to draw, from memory, the continent of Europe.
Each week students study one or more new countries. As they do so, they become familiar with the shapes of the new countries by tracing them, locating them on a map, and labeling them. To give students an opportunity to learn interesting facts about each individual country, they are asked to complete a country fact table, documenting each countries’ population, cultures, major religions, climate, and resources.
To complete the table, students may research the individual countries by studying a world atlas or one of several online resources; a couple of which are listed below:

To streamline the completion of the country fact table, instructors may prefer to purchase The National Geographic Bee Ultimate Fact Book: Countries A to Z. With this resource, students will find an alphabetical listing of countries that provides, for each country, physical information, political information, and economic information.
