Geography: Learning the Continents

In the past week or so we have begun to attempt a little bit of geography. I figured it would be a good thing for Miss Priss and Bubba to be able to at least identify the 7 continents and be able to point them out on a map. Well right now we are just focusing on naming them, which I think is going pretty well. Eventually I hope to focus on each one individually and maybe learn a little bit about each one, but for right now naming them is what we are focusing on.

I knew that we would need a little help and of course a visual. I didn't want to go out and just buy a world map. I wanted Little Miss and bubba to be involved so this is what I came up with.

When we first started learning about the continents, I went onto and printed off a world map coloring page. I had each of my littles color the map and we labeled it together. We have hung our maps up and have them there to refer to each day.

After a few days I thought we needed something even more hands on and BIGGER. This is what we did:

 We took a poster board and I had them paint it blue for the ocean.
Eventually we will label the oceans, but we have not yet.
 I went onto Here and printed off a coloring page for each continent. I did this on white card stock. I colored them myself, labelled them, and laminated them.
We now have a great activity for learning the continents. They can practice placing the continents where they go. We have even begun talking about Pangea. Bubba likes trying to make a mega continent.

I am now just trying to think of more crafts, etc. to do with the continents. Does anyone have any ideas????

Please e-mail me or comment and let me know. This would so help :>

Have a Blessed Day!
