Journeys Around the World

The world is a diverse place. That much is obvious just walking down the island of Manhattan from Central Park to the banking district different neighborhoods have very distinct cultural identities, as immigrants from the same country have come together as a community. That means there is a lot of really neat culture and ethnicity just waiting to be discovered and it is a real shame that most of us can't actually experience it person. I guess we will just have to let Bryce and Avaron show us around as they experience some countries from around the world. The siblings get to tour some of the best these countries have to offer, all the while giving us details through their conversations, photos, and adventures. In general, five chapters are devoted to each country, and Bryce and Avaron go out of their way to explore the geography, food, culture, people, and ideas of each country they visit. Activities at each chapter's end reinforce these experiences with vocabulary work, comprehension exercises, writing projects, research projects, and map, graph, or timeline work. While the focus is on the modern country, there is plenty of historical information thrown in. Black and white photos illustrate the text throughout, and an answer key is included in the back. These workbooks are an engaging introduction to some of the world's most prominent cultures. ~ Zach
