EUROPE Country by Country

Europe Country By Country Printables

Recently we released AFRICA Country by Country and today we have our next set in our new Country by Country series – EUROPE!

Europe Country by Country

Each country has one page with a place to write the country’s name and the capital city’s name. There is also a small map of each country and a large blank map of Europe to color in the country’s location on the map. I also included the country’s flag to color and one interesting fact about each country. I had SO much fun choosing the facts and I highly recommend taking a few minutes to do a quick online search for “Fun Facts About _________” as you go through each country. We are doing our countries in alphabetical order, but you can do them in any order!

A few other helpful pages are included in this set, which will help with some of the items on the individual country pages.

In addition to the pages for each country, there’s also a sheet at the front to record each country as you learn it. The map gets filled in as he works through the countries one by one.

Slide5

Another fun page I included is a sheet to record countries you’ve been to!

Slide6

I used our binding machine to bind the pages together to create a book that’s easy to work through. Not sure how I made it so long as a homeschooler without my binding machine!

Continent Boxes ~ Europe

Continent Box Europe

I have had “create continent boxes” on my to-do list for over a year!  Finally I am getting started!  I started with Europe since the Olympics are in London, and since our next Little Passports country is France! You always get some little things with each Little Passports month, which I will add to the continent box!  These are works in progress, I even have a wishlist of books and things I want to add to this and other boxes!  We will use these boxes for years and years!

I have no real plan with these, just a fun way to expose my kids to cultures, countries, and world geography in general.  Here’s a post from one of my favorite blogs all about continent boxes.

For now, I have our Europe set up like this {see photo below}.  I have a large foam floor puzzle and I pulled out just the Europe part, I also have a large puzzle of Europe, and the board of Europe from Where in the World {I added the cards into the box}.  Our Little Passports map hangs on the wall close by too!

I bought my boxes from Walmart, in 2 different sizes {small 6.7qt, large 12.7qt} knowing I would need bigger ones for continents with more stuff! I made simple labels that color-coordinate with Montessori geography colors. This box is the smaller of the 2 sizes I bought.  Eventually I may have to upgrade to all large, but for now this one works!Continent Box Europe

 

What’s Inside?

MANY materials from Montessori Print Shop!  Thankfully I was given their bundle to review last year, I have had many of the country printables printed for many, many months, just now getting around to cutting and laminating!  Specifically I am using the Europe Geography Folder {I made ours as a book in sheet protectors}, European Animals, European Landmarks, & European Instruments. Be sure to read to the end for a giveaway!

For the 3 part cards, I decided to save laminating and cutting time and mounted mine in file folders.  I laminated the matching images and words so the kids can just lay them on top of the file folder.  I used tape for this one, but it’s ugly, so I might do something different with my next country.  I just know my kids won’t use these tons, so I didn’t want to waste lots of time cutting and laminating!Europe Printables

 

I searched online to find a map that was colorful and labeled, to print and laminate for the box, my favorite ended up being this one.  On the back side, I added an alphabetical listing of all of the countries in Europe {I created this and you can download the PDF file in the Europe section on my new Continent Boxes webpage}.

There is a blank alphabetical European countries printable, as a little challenge for PacMan and me!  I also found a blank map that we can color in together, it is from here.  I copied it and added my own text in Publisher {I can’t share since the map is not mine}

Here you can see us exploring together, there’s no real plan.  The kids can explore the box on their own, and I also am taking time to explore together.  Homeschool Europe Continent Box-8435
