Around the World in 196 (ish) Days

My boys are starting a year long journey around the world....you know...in their minds...lol..I got a large wall map and each day we will move a pin to a new country. Since there are roughly 196 countries in the world that's how long it will take. The kids will be making a 3 Ring Binder into a large travel brochure - so at each country they will make a little 1 page lapbook-style brochure on that country. We are very excited to learn all the ins and outs of the world around us. 

This post has all the resources we'll be utilizing.

You really are amazing.  Thank you for sharing all this stuff.  We're headed out to camp tomorrow, so I have to look at everything later, but I'm very excited to get into it all!

I love this idea! Maybe we will use it next year or the year after, this year I think we are doing ancient geography along with ancient history. But this is a really great idea! Thank you for sharing everything :)
