This year we are using Five in a Row and Galloping the Globe to travel around the world. Right now I’m working on our travel plans errr lesson plans. I’m making a passport for each of our little travelers, and they love the idea!
I found some beautiful free passport stamps to print and use from the Lutheran church website. They are absolutely wonderful! They also have a downloadable newsletter called Mission Friends. Each one is about a different country and has stories, recipes and games as well as good country stats and information. These would be a great addition to any study.
If you would like to make some play passports you can find templates at the Galloping the Globe yahoo group. I also found this website you can buy the file for only 5.00 and make your own. Or for a little more she will make you one.
I’ve been finding a lot of great geography sites. This one Geographic guide has wonderful maps and country information.
