Creative and filled with ideas for traveling the world in your studies, Galloping the Globe
is a unit study for kindergarten through fourth grade. Focusing on the seven continents and some specific countries, this study is designed to take 1-3 years to complete; suggested schedules are included. Integrating geography, Bible, history, science, literature, and maps & flags, children will discover the famous people from each country as well as holidays and other cultural traditions.
