Congratulations to our winner: Caryn Block!
This comprehensive unit study & customizable notebooking packet includes notebooking pages and maps for every single country in Africa. There are lots of printing and formatting options, so the very first thing I recommend is to take a look at the 19 page Resource and Introductory Guide to familiarize yourself with your options.
There are 6 pages containing photographs sized just right for pasting onto your notebooking pages. All the photos are organized by country.
There are 7 pages of full color flags that act as a color guide as children color in the black line flags on each notebooking page. You can also cut them out and paste them into your notebook, or reduce the size to use in a passport.
After the coversheet there are two full maps of the African continent. One that is simply an outline, and another that shows the current political borders — including South Sudan, and the disputed border between Morocco and Western Sahara.
If you have little ones, or don’t want to do that much writing, you also have the option to print out the ‘mostly-filled-in’ notebooking pages. These only have a few places where writing is needed, while still leaving lots of activity areas for littles to help with.
