If you had a round the world ticket where would you go?
This great new book by Lonely planet allows children to participate in a choose your own adventure style travel book – what fun!
As you arrive at each destination you learn something new and get to decide how you will travel – which allows you to move to a new country depending on the mode you choose.
The information is short and simple so kids will learn just enough before moving on and the way you travel to the next city teaches children about distances between places.
Travel is important but it is more important to understand the places you are travelling to and in – we shouldn’t expect places we visit to be like our own cities.
By introducing children to facts and figures about new places that are different to our own it can show them how wonderful travelling can be – as they will learn about a new culture, be part of the lifestyle and absorb language and mannerisms.
Round the world in 50 ways is such a fun way to teach geography and can be read again and again!
And – come over and join my facebook group where we discuss how we can help our students and children understand and take action on these big issues!
