Divided Earth

Earth's regions can be defined by physical elements like landforms, climate, and soil or by cultural differences like politics, economics, religion, and so on. The following activities will help your child understand regions.

Directions

  1. With your child, look at the physical regions in your home. Ask him, "Is there a sleeping region? An eating region? What other regions can you describe?"
  2. Take your child to plays, movies, and puppet shows about people from other countries. Read picture books, novels, and nonfiction about other countries. Listen to music from other countries. If possible, wear clothing and buy or make food typical of other countries. Learn simple words and phrases in another language.
  3. Have your child compare coins and stamps from various countries. Coins and stamps tell many things about a country, such as its political leaders, wildlife, history, sports, and so on.
