I’m so excited to share with you Eli’s elementary adventures around the world!

Over the course of the year, I’ll share each of the country studies we do.  You will always be able to find an updated list of the posts in this category by clicking on this image in the sidebar.

Around the World Series at Our Journey Westward

Keeping On Track as We Travel

Every new study will have some consistent elements: geography/mapping, current culture, bits and pieces of history, current country flag, missionary tie-in, science (usually relating to animals and their habitats), literature/fables, art, cooking, and technology.  Below are the resources that will be used regularly in our lessons.

Using Technology in Around the World Study

My iPhone has been coming in handy every.single.time. we sit down for lessons.  YouTube videos, quick image searches, listening to music or musical instruments – when Eli has a question, we just search.  Wow.  Homeschooling this little guy has certainly been different than my older two at this age.  What an exciting way to learn!

I hope you’ll join me this year as we tour the countries of the world!
