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 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.

  1. Hi, we are a secular-based homeschooling family. I was wondering how much of religion is incorporated? I am not opposed to learning about religion or teaching my son Christianity, just curious as to how much is in it!
    Thanks so much,
    Samantha

    1. There is religious information on each culture as you study through the curriculum. There is also a bullet point to pray for the people of each country as you’re studying it.

  4. Hi!

    I ordered the Expedition earth entire pack a year or so ago and the dvd with songs never worked in my car, or in my computer…. I was wondering if there’s a way I could get them digitally? It’s been a while and I have been meaning to follow up, we just had a baby a few months back and I finally realized I still needed to get in touch with someone who can help with our situation and faulty cd.

    Thanks in advance!

  5. Hi! Your youtube video mentions A Trip Around the World and Another Trip Around the World as resources. However, I did not see them listed on the sample resource page. Are they optional? Also, do your lessons reference them?
    Thanks!

    1. Hi, the curriculum has been updated and I no longer use those books. At this point you really just need a map/globe and the World Encyclopedia. Everything else is now included in the curriculum 🙂
