Kids will love discovering this huge continent as they try out a variety of learning experiences. Kids will explore Switzerland, the Netherlands, France, and Germany, and their traditions through cultural activities like making a Swiss Skibok, eating French Hors’ D’oeuvres, creating an Edelweiss hat, or playing a German game like “Katz und Maus.” They’ll learn about Germany fairy tales, try out Bavarian pretzels, or dip into a French fondue. But the highlight of this study are the Cultural Gatherings! Kids will love planning for several gatherings such as a Swiss Sechselaeuten or a German Oktoberfest, and try out German blitzkuchen or French haute cuisine!

Notebooking Focus:
All along the way, students will complete an open and go travel diary. The diary includes more content about Western Europe, drawings and interactive fun, cut-outs, native costume designs, and so much more that will help the learning really stick! It’s a great journey, and packed with family fun!

This study includes most of the reading you need for the study, an activity resource, a profile on an African child, a guide for planning the Cultural Gathering, the Travel Diary pages, and more! It is planned around a four-day week, to make it super easy to fit into a busy family’s schedule.
