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 Kindergarten-5th grade. Students will learn about 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 altogether. (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!
Additional activities for older students:Depending on the age of your student you may want some additional challenge. I have created 5 reports that your student can complete depending on interest or skill level.

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 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! There is an additional reading resource section in the Appendix.
As if that weren’t enough, I also have a FREE 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:

And as an added bonus, Maureen Spell from Spell Out Loud made a great Continent Hop Scotch Game to go along with it!
Hope you enjoy learning all about God’s World!
Hello! Is there anywhere to see what countries are included in this? Thanks!
There is a sample download in the post, just click that and it will show all of the countries we cover 🙂
Hi! I know this post us from a few years ago so if you have a more updated opinion on a curriculum like Ex. Earth, please let me know. I’m wondering though – If we purchase the download – is that EVERYTHING I need to execute this program? Or is there more? Is there a video component?
Yes the curriculum comes with everything you need. I do recommend getting a globe or world wall map as well just for reference.
Hi can anyone help me? I have the Expedition Earth-A journey through God’s Word Revised edition. I believe 2016 copyright.
Can you lead me to the a link with the Geography Songs? Where are these located on the curriculum page?
Hi, they are on YouTube, and there should be a link in the resources section of your teacher’s manual 🙂 Email me if you have issues finding them!
Do I need to purchase the CD or can I order the pdf and have the complete curriculum?
Do you sell the Christmas Around the World Unit on its own? Or do you have a sample of what’s in it?
