Around the World: The Continents and Oceans
In 3rd grade social studies we recently took on the task of learning the names and locations of the 7 continents of the world - North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and Antarctica, and also the 5 oceans - Pacific, Atlantic, Arctic, Indian, and Southern.
We had help learning them in a variety of ways including visuals, songs, funny videos, and even made-up stories like North and South America being married (ask your child about that one). Most importantly, we had a lot of FUN learning them and did a great job throughout the whole process.
We know that there is much value in learning about the world around us! Included are links to some of the tools we used to help us learn.
