Looking to expand your geographical boundaries? Check out this adventurous new series from Amanda Bennett! Although designed for a fast-paced, week-long tour, families may also choose to extend their geographical stay with the abundant book, video, online activities and "app" resource lists if they choose. For Pinterest followers, additional support materials are available on the Unit Studies by Amanda Bennett boards.

Each country study is available on CD-ROM in two levels (or a combo set which includes both sets of PDFs). The Scout level is for elementary students K-6, and the Explorer level is for Jr. and Sr. High. True to the unit study nature, both levels are flexible to include learners of all ages. For families with an older elementary and Jr./ Sr. High student, the Explorer set provides enough lesson flexibility that you could use it with both age groups.

Included in the Scout Daily Learning Plan are Scripture readings; geographic terms and mapping activities; important country location studies; a look at significant people; a cultural study which includes food, language and the flag; scientific discoveries and natural wonders; and native animals. A family fun project and lapbook templates are also integrated.

The Explorer Daily Learning Plan consists of geographic terms; physical geography and mapping activities; virtual travels across the country; scientific discoveries and experiments; significant historical events; cultural studies including food, language and flags; important people to be researched and studied; native animals; Scripture readings; and additional internet links for further study. A writing project is included with links to expand on how to plan, organize, outline and write the research paper.

Each CD-ROM contains Adobe PDF files for ease of use with the online links. While most of the lessons are self-contained through an abundance of internet links, we are also pleased to offer book packages to supplement your geography study. Grade specific packages are available as is a general geography package which offers resources listed for all the studies. See our website for corresponding book packs.

Topically, much of the same information is covered at both grade levels. Additional topics are added to the Explorer studies for older or advanced students. The France study highlights the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Corsica, Chateau de Chambord, Monet, Pasteur, Louis Braille, and much more. Explore the Rhine River, Bavarian Alps, the Black Forest, castles, Gummi-Bears, and the Volkswagen factory in your travels across Germany. Children will also meet the Brothers Grimm, Gutenberg, Beethoven and other famous Germans. Traverse through the Roman Coliseum, Sistine Chapel, and the Ferrari Factory and meet famous Italians Marco Polo, Galileo, Vivaldi and Leonardo da Vinci as you journey through Italy. Journeying through the UK, you will explore Buckingham Palace and the impact of Romans on Britain and be introduced to Queen Victoria, C.S. Lewis, King Arthur and literary greats Shakespeare (Explorer) and Beatrix Potter (Scout).
