Remember the Geography Projects from A to Z I have been slowly working on? I FINALLY finished our project for the letter C. This one took me a lot longer than I planned… For the letter C we have been working on continents. This is a fun way to help your kids learn their world map and the continents. Although it took me a long time, it was a lot of fun to put together.
We are using the book Geography from A to Z by Jack Knowlton. So far we have done atoll & archipelago for A, beach & bay for B, and our geography nesting cans.
To make it I used a bunch of felt in various colors, a science project board and some tacky glue. I printed out a big map from this site. You can print it huge on multiple pages and then tape the pages together. There are a bunch of different maps & sizes to choose from, too. I used this as my outline for the different continents.
I cut out all of the continents on paper first, then pinned each one to a different color of felt.

I am a huge fan of flannel, and I *love* how you used it for the continents! My head is just racing with other ideas for your continent pieces…like in a discussion of plate tectonics or Pangaea or even the water cycle! Thanks so much for linking up at Teach Me Tuesday at Preschool Powol Packets!

Wow! What a great idea! I really love this. I think I may make one using the Montessori Continent colors because we are going to study geography this year! Thanks for the idea!

LOVE this! Way to go — we definitely need to start doing some geography around here. The kids are so interested when they’re young – need to capitalized on that!
