Why Teaching Geography & The Continents Matters for Elementary Classrooms

It is SO fun to teach students about geography. For primary kids, the world feels huge. Just their town feels big enough. So when you start teaching about all of the continents across the world, it can be hard for them to fully understand!

One of the trickiest things for our youngest learners to understand is that there is a great big world beyond the small little bubbles they live in!

But, it’s our job to help them understand that they have an important place in the greater world.

Learning about the 7 continents is a great way to expose young students to the big world!

All of my resources are geared to help you help your students LOVE the world around them. With my wide range of project ideas, printables, crafts, and worksheets, you’ll have a classroom full of students eager to learn more!
