Your student will quickly be engrossed in this intriguing way of learning geography! Students will discover the continent of South America by drawing, working through a step-by-step learning process. Students are given instruction as to where to begin so they can correctly position the continent on the right latitude and longitude lines, and given helps and practice to gain proficiency in drawing the continent. As they sketch, they create designs that will help them recall what to draw, and learn the names of the individual countries.

As the student profiles South America, then sketches it, creates their own drafts, and identifies key geographical points, they will be absorbing the geography of this continent. Repeated practice and sketching opportunities really help it “stick.” By the time students are finished with this resource, they will be able to draw the continent of South America without helps onto a graph of their own making. It’s amazing — and it’s a fun way to learn!
