"My second grader is touring Europe with her siblings with Explore the Continents." —Megan, AZ

Our son completed Explore the Continents, and my husband and I are amazed at the wealth of knowledge he studied, organized, and has retained! We were on a field trip where his knowledge of Asian and African elephants even stumped the museum docent!

Loving Explore the Continents!! Finished exploring North America and making the continent out of salt dough. It was wonderful to make even with my 3-year-old! Looking forward to working on South America next!

My son enjoyed making the climate graphs. He was very interested in choosing the cities, and he learned that the city near the equator had a consistent line of temperatures and the other northern hemisphere city had an arch with more extreme temps and seasons. This was a fabulous lesson!
