Continent Studies

Our Continent Studies materials introduce geography through a focus on the natural landscape. Rather than emphasizing the distinctions of political boundaries, we instead present geography as a study of contiguous biomes, such as the forests, deserts, and mountains that cover a continent. This fosters an understanding of the world based on the relationships of the parts of a biome and the plants, animals, and people that inhabit it. The children gain increasingly sophisticated knowledge of geography, ecology, zoology, and cultural anthropology through materials designed for primary, lower elementary, and upper elementary classrooms.
