We are always trying to bring the world into our school. We are a world schoolers at heart, and while we do travel, though not nearly as much as I would like too, we also do a lot of virtually traveling. Now that the world is so accessible to us, it is a lot easier to virtually travel with our kids… visit museums all over the world, listen to tours all over the world, there is a lot out there. One resource that I have been having a heap of fun with, with my youngest three is the Case of Adventure.
Switzerland in a Chapter Book
A while ago we won the Case of Adventures first book, The Cuckoo Clock, and adventure that takes a homeschooling family of five from Cape Town to Switzerland. What starts as an exciting discovery quickly becomes a wild quest as the five children go on an adventure uncovering history and treasure, as they work together to solve the puzzle.
The story is great but there is more, the resource pack that you can purchase with it is incredible. Everything you could possibly need for a virtual adventure. The printable pack of pure fun, we didn’t dive into it at first we just looked at it and loved it… but this year we have totally gotten into it… the resource pack comes with a travel starter pack… everything you need to get your journey going… travel documents, codes and ciphers, airport signage, maps and paper money… this is a well thought out project, by a mom who knows how to stir up her kids curiosity and who believes that play is learning. Homeschoolers and non-homeschoolering children who are into adventures and discovery will love this.
Madagascar the Podcast
We were so excited recently to discover that a podcast was beginning… Countries for Kids, and the first country is Madagascar. Along with the podcast is a free printable pack… with everything you can think of: maps, money, flags, postcards, word searches and crosswords, animal cards. There are things to fill in, but just enough for the minimalist writer not to think there is too much writing and just enough to make you feel like you have been on an adventure.
Romania the Podcast
The second podcast in the series is all about Romania, and it’s activity pack you can also download for free. The activity pack has recipes, vocabulary cards, visas, and all the goodies you will need for the most committed virtual traveler.
Scotland in a Chapter Book
