TOS-Travel the World

I am so excited to be kicking off my first year on the crew with my review of:
Cost: $7.95
This unit can be used for many age groups.

Here is what The Old Schoolhouse Store says about this ebook:

Does your child have a curiosity about the world and a fascination for travel?
What’s your destination?
Hop around the globe, visit your favorite places, and experience some fun activities along the way!

Help your child discover the world in a whole new way with our latest module . . .
Travel the World!
Packed full of information, hyperlinks, puzzles, quizzes, and more, all to add fun to your investigation of the world!

How is the earth the setting for God’s story?
Can you piece together the countries of Africa by their shapes?
How do numbers help us find locations on the globe?
Here’s a wonderful opportunity to use your child’s natural curiosity to enhance his or her knowledge of related science and geography topics while investigating many fun facets of learning about God’s wonderful design for the earth.

Look inside this module to find exciting learning adventures:

•Travel around the seven continents researching your favorite places to visit.
•Explore fun geography facts with links to even more geography fun!
•Begin creating your own Travel the World lapbook.
•Discover what the Bible says about God’s design for earth.
•Learn important lessons from map activities!
•Enjoy Internet games as you tour each continent.
•Use the high school expansion section and integrate geography into many interesting fields of study!

We really enjoyed this unit.  All the hard work is done for us.  All we had to do was learn.  All of the words in blue are an internet link.  We just click on the link and it will take us to another website with more information regarding the world.  How GREAT is research on the teacher's/parent's part.  This is not something just for home schools...anyone can use this with their children.  Does your church support missionaries? Use this as a study to learn more about where your missionaries are.   Since we are a family who is very interested in missions we used this to travel around the world and learn about where our missionaries are living.  We look forward to using this a lot through out this coming school year. 

Our children are on their summer school break...they were not even the least bit disappointed that they had to "learn" during the summer!  The lessons are so much fun.  We are still working on the lapbook portion of the module but all in all it was such a great study!!  Most importantly very user friendly!

Thank you to The Old Schoolhouse Store for providing us with the ebook free of charge to review!  We really enjoyed this study and look forward to doing more of it this year.

How wonderful! That sounds like so much fun. What a great idea to learn about the places that the missionaries are living in! It deffinately sounds like it's worth the money and it's something I would consider!
