We’ll be using this for our Geography and Science this year, so I hope you’ll join in with us! And since I’ve had so many requests, I decided to do a video to show you some of the fun things included in this curriculum!

So what is Expedition Earth: A Journey Through God’s World?

Expedition Earth is a hands on world geography curriculum that covers 31 countries across the world. It is designed primarily for K-5th grade students. Students will learn the continents, oceans, people, cultures, animals, climates, try new foods, crafts and more, all through hands-on activities! I used it with my preschooler, 1st grader, and 2nd grader all together. (My preschooler didn’t do any reports, but she did learn the country names, songs, languages, pray and do all the fun crafts and recipe activities!)

The revised version includes Lap Books for each country, new information, internet links, and books. Here’s a peek at the Teacher’s Manual. It includes everything you need for each lesson including any additional info, internet links, reading assignments, crafts, and recipes for each country as needed. There are 32 weeks of lesson plans, plus a Christmas Around the World Unit. The Teacher’s Manual is outlined for you on a daily basis and even includes a Craft Supply Shopping List for each country just to make your life a little easier!

Additional Reading: I’ve included an additional reading resource section in the Appendix of the teacher’s manual, and I also suggest visiting your local library or doing an internet search for countries that interest your child. They can use these books during their free reading time for a more in depth study!

As if that weren’t enough, I also included an animal unit study called Expedition Earth: Discovering God’s Animals. It’s a wonderful supplement for Expedition Earth, and includes animals found in each country, a mini-book, and animal cards. It also includes animal classification labels for an animal wall. Here’s a peek:

  1. This was a great video many thanks. I live in the UK and wondered where you got the childrens plastic dividers. They were great, I find my boys dont always want to do lapbooks but having somewhere to store everything in one place is a great idea.
    Thanks again Lindsay

  2. I really appreciate your videos. Other people showing curriculum don’t go into any detail about the curriculum or how they use it. That doesn’t help me at all. Your videos on the other hand are priceless to people like me. Thank you for sharing and all the help you give. God bless you and your beautiful children.

    1. Thanks so much! That makes me feel a little better about all of my rambling 🙂 I never know if people are interested in hearing it all or not LOL! Glad that it’s helped you!

  3. Oh thank you so much for this review!! I have gotten most of my stuff together so that we can start in July, but seeing how everything was organized was so helpful! Thank you thank you! A quick question…where did you get it printed and bound for $3?! My estimate for it was over $100! I ended up printing it in black and white and NOT binding it and it was still $25! And I still have to get some things reprinted (like the flag stickers) because they look so much better in color!

  4. Thanks for sharing how you put the books together! I didn’t think of that! I like having the paper version better. And we will be doing this this upcoming year as well, but in a different order, because we are also using My Father’s World Exploring Countries and Cultures, and it is very similar and uses some of the same book/resources, but you both do different projects, so I am very excited! Our Co-op also will be using Expedition Earth as a backbone for one of the classes. 🙂

  5. Erica, thank you so much for making this video. This helps SOOOO much in getting my school year together this year. It all makes sense now. HA HA HA And to see the insides of some of the required books is so helpful.

    I think I have an older version of Expedition Earth (CD). Can you send me the newer portions I am missing please??? I have written you an email, but no answer as of yet. Thanks so much!!!!

      1. I forgot to come back and tell you, thank you for the newer version. I am all ready to start Expedition Earth this year with my 4th grader and Kindergartner. We are all excited. First day of school is tomorrow, August 3rd!

    1. Yes, it is. The prayer items are a bullet point assignment, so you can skip that if you want to. There is religious information throughout the curriculum because as you learn about each country you will learn about their main religion as well.

  6. Greetings from Vancouver, Canada! Thank you for this amazing curriculum. After watching this video, I bought Expedition Earth, and recommended it to several friends. Question – you mention that your children
    learned a great deal about each of the animals in your animal curriculum. I couldn’t find that info in my download – am I missing it, or is that info gleaned from our own independent research? Just wanting to make sure I’m not missing something important from user error.
