Dig into African history to see how European countries influenced the continent. See Africa’s beauty in over 550 photos and create a visual image of the continent with over 75 beautifully designed maps.”

Galloping the Globe
Galloping the Globe
If you are looking for a world geography course that is geared to younger students in grades K to 3, you may want to look at Galloping the Globe.
Galloping the Globe “is a delightful way to introduce young children to all aspects of geography. It provides fun and creative methods to explore many cultures around the world without overwhelming young children. One of the best features is that the curriculum can be use as a stand-alone unit study or as a resource to enhance another world geography studies.” (from the back cover of Galloping the Globe)
This is a geography-based curriculum that can be used for one to three years. Galloping the Globe is organized by continent and incorporates the student notebook approach. For each country, it integrates eight categories of learning activities including basic geography, people and history, literature, science, vocabulary, music and art projects, Internet sources, and Bible.
