World Geography- Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Andorra

We are going on a Geography Expedition around the world, learning 4 (four) new countries each week that we homeschool. Azara and her friends will be using our Children of the World Notebook to record the countries that we visit. Inspired by photographer Anthony Asael's wonderful book: Children of the World.


Sajid, Zahid and their friends will by using our more detailed-World Country Study Notebook to record the countries that we visit. We will add the 4 countries that we toured to our Blog so that you can explore God's beautiful world with us. 

Encourage your children to find their very own Fun Fact about each country, something that they found really interesting which will help them to remember that country. Try a Recipe from the country or share Item from your Travels (currency, postcard, pottery, etc) or have your children create an original Artwork similar to the artwork from the country.
