As a second grader, I remember really enjoying the unit when we studied the continents. Zachary has been interested in the continents since my brother n law taught him a song about the continents when he was 3. Adelyn is now 3 and she is acquiring her own interest in maps so we pulled out the large world map and taught her the song (thank you again Kev!)
Both of the kids had a great time jumping from continent to continent as each one was called out during the song.
This activity is great for:
- spatial awareness
- auditory skills
- visual skills
