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. If your child would like to the can do their own research on the country for that month or on a country of their choice. please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will hopefully at the end of the year have a display of work sent in.
