130+ Awesome South America Unit Study Ideas

South-America-Unit-Study-Ideas

With how much of a hit my Antarctica Unit study ideas post was I thought it would be helpful to others to start sharing some of our other continent study ideas with other homeschoolers. There are so many great resources we use from around the web some we have already used and other ones we will use in future studies. This list is to help me remember where to find them, and help other homeschoolers/teachers find great resources while teaching their kids/students about South America.

In our homeschool we do not use much of a geography curriculum with our younger kids. For the older kids we use Charlotte Mason History/Geography/Bible class which is wonderful and amazing for them. For our younger kids we try to teach them using more hands on methods, and read great literature.

 

We make food from the country we are learning about, learn about the culture and people, learn about different landmarks, read great books, do different craft ideas, add in some sensory ideas, and more.

      There are so many great ideas I find while we go through out continent studies, finding them the next year when we go through them again is always a struggle. So the list is perfect for me to access later and for others to use with teaching their children. Thanks for following, much appreciated! Have a blessed weekend!!
