Travel the World!

I'm excited to be writing my first product review for The Old Schoolhouse Store!

Travel the World is a unit study that can be used with various ages and can be a stand alone or you can use it as a foundation for more in depth lesson plans.  Within this ebook are:

  • A brief overview of Geography
  • Activity pages such as word finds, rebus puzzles, poetry, coloring pages and more!
  • Copywork pages
  • Lapbook templates
  • Special section to use with High Schoolers
  • Recipes
  • Answer Keys
  • Resource links, some to The Old Schoolhouse Store and others out in the world wide web
We found this unit study to be a good asset for our homeschool as it incorporates across curriculum knowledge such as reading, writing, art and technology.  The resource links to enhance the learning experience were wonderful to have at our fingertips.  And since it's an e-book, I was able to print the pages I needed such as the reproducible worksheets.  In this way, we saved money by NOT printing out the overview and just read it straight from the computer.  :)

You can purchase this product by either buying the TOS planner, it's included as one of the monthly modules(unit studies), or as a separate unit study.  The Travel the World e-book is affordably priced at $7.95.  If you're interested in the  2010-2011 Schoolhouse Planner, it sells for $39.00.

Personally, I would have liked to see a little more information included on the continents.  Also, we haven't done a lot of lapbooks/notebooks in our homeschooling journey, but are beginning to do more and I was expecting more in that area.  It still is a good resource to have for your geography lesson plans!

**I received this product to review, free of charge. These opinions are my own.**
