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!

Language study: Each country comes with a fun flashcard to help you learn how to say “hello” in the main language of the country!

Printable Passport: No world wide expedition would be complete without a fun souvenir for the students! Expedition Earth comes with a fun printable passport that you can use to stamp for each country visited. I have also included printable flags that can be added to your passport as you travel through.
And as an added bonus, all students participating in Expedition Earth will receive a a commemorative Certificate of Completion once they’ve completed their journey!
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.
