Level 1: We encourage our Kindergartners and first graders to participate at this level, where they will focus on learning five levels a month, eventually memorizing forty countries.
Level 2: This level expands level one to eighty countries, plus the three great oceans.
Level 3: Level 3 adds lesser known countries and island groupings and includes the continents, plus four oceans, two seas, the equator and the prime meridian.
Level 4: At this very challenging expert level the student will learn all the world countries by end of the school year! Twenty-five countries are learned each month. In addition, they learn the continents, oceans, seas, bays, gulfs, Oceania, the equator and the prime meridian.
Level 5: This is the highest level. It is the level where they really start to explore what they have learned. Students learn the capitals of all the major countries learned in level one and also memorize deserts and mountain ranges.
Special Itinerary: Optional extra projects encourage students to dive deeper. These projects will vary from month to month, and are designed to keep the students interested in learning more about geography, beyond memorization of locations. Additional stamps are earned for these projects. If you would like to help with a Special Itinerary, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
