Welcome to Day 3 of our Around the World Hopscotch!

Today you’ll find movies to enrich your geography studies. Plus, you will find links to our 5 Days Around-the-World Series and resources organized by continent!

I’m so happy to be able to share these amazing resources with you. We went around-the-world with our kindergarten curriculum and plan on “traveling” again when my younger kids are in K and 2nd grade.

These resources are meant to complement and enrich your lesson plans. If you are creating your own plans, you will find resources here that certainly could fill up a year! Our family enjoys reading, crafts, hands-on activities, projects, and using media to support learning. We are truly an eclectic bunch!

These resources are appropriate for 5-8 years old, roughly primary grades k-2. As always, use your best discretion.

Movie Night!

We love using movies to supplement and support our lesson plans. It’s a fun way to extend our homeschool units and a memorable way to introduce the sights and sounds of countries and people across the globe.

Whether you’re watching animal documentaries or Disney movies, there is something to be gleaned from the depictions of the countries, continents, and habitats around the world. Movies are a hook into new material and can reactivate a child’s knowledge when used as review.

I hope you enjoy this movie list as much as we have! I found the material here to be appropriate for my five year old son, though my little ones often joined in. Some of the documentaries (and even cartoons) might be scary for a sensitive child. Everyone is a different.
