Category Description for Trip Around the World Series:

You and your young children can get a taste of other cultures and countries with these brief "visits" to other lands. As you arrive in each country, you'll learn some basics about it, including its location, flag, short history, and statistics. Fascinating Facts teach you more about the people, traditions, everyday life, physical geography, and history. As you visit, you'll want to learn a little about the language - at least some basics. Phonetic pronunciations help you sound like a native as you acquire some rudimentary conversational phrases. There's even a song that you can sing to a familiar tune. The experience would not be complete without a sampling of the local foods, so one or more simple recipes are supplied to help you enjoy the cuisine. An assortment of activities are suggested to enhance your study. For the Mexican excursion, these include making adobe houses, making tissue-paper flowers (clear, step-by-step instructions for this craft are included), celebrating Cinco de Mayo, making a topographical map, taking Mexican names for the day, and having a Mexican feast (let's do it all!). So you don't forget the tour, a blackline flag is provided to color and save along with a map to use for any mapping activities, and a reproducible page to recap all the aspects of your journey. For Mexico, this is a page full of sombreros which children color according to the Mexican color names (English also provided) and use for pages of a Mexican book of colors. You can also attach them to sticks and have them perform a Mexican hat dance. After this page is a list of fiction and non-fiction resource books. This book takes you to Mexico, Brazil, Egypt, Kenya, Germany, The Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, China, Japan, Australia, Canada, and the United States. Another Trip Around the World visits India, Argentina, South Africa, Israel, Italy, Panama, Nigeria, Greece, France, Russia, Venezuela and Antarctica. A New Trip Around the World transports you to Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Cuba, Peru, Chile, Spain, the United Kingdom, Norway, Iraq, Afghanistan, Ghana, and Morocco. Get your passports ready!

I would probably say this is the funnest book we bought out of all our homeschool materials last year I am using it with a 4 and 6 year old but depending on how in depth you want to be you can easily use this for a wide range of ages The book has great resource lists and many of the suggested books/videos I have found at our library We use the fascinating facts page by making a scavenger hunt of clues around our house and each time the kids find a clue I read a fact about the country we are visiting We even reasearched passports and made our own so they get a stamp every time we have finished a country (this idea was not included in the book) There are many other fun activities for each country and we spend 2 weeks in each of the 12 countries so our trips last most of the school year Each week we practice our colors/counting in a different language but I think one of the best things are the recipes All of the ones we have tried have been easy to make and taste good I am even thinking of having an ethnic food sampling party at the end of the school year for friends/family so we can display the flags the kids colored and some of the photos of the activities we did We also put a tack in a large world map on our wall so the kids can see where we are each week I guess I could go on and on that's how excited I am about this book and I can't wait to start Another Trip Around the World next fall
