Teaching About Other Countries

One of the benefits of living in a country that is not my home country Egypt Research Bookis the ability to teach my children about other countries and other cultures.  I try to carry this over into the classroom by using my country books.  (You can grab all of the country books I have created for FREE in the exclusive page offered in my Raki’s Rad Resources Newsletter.)  In each country book, students list basic facts about the country they are learning about.  I make each book exclusive to the country they are learning about – in order to keep their interest and give them clues to the answers they are looking for. 

Morocco Informational GlogAs an added step, I am starting to make glogs that my students can use to help them find the answers.  Here is the glog I created for my Morocco book.  I am now working on one for my Egypt book.


If you would like to grab a “generic” country book – you can click on Country Research Bookthe picture and grab one FREE from Google Docs.  If you would like the more specific books – sign up for my Raki’s Rad Resources Newsletter and you can grab plenty more from the Exclusive Freebie Page – and I’m developing more all the time, as I have plans to do one country book a month with my students next year!
