We have really enjoyed traveling Asia for a fabulous continent study. It started off with an amazing journey through China. Check out how we explored and learned all about The great Wall of China with our edible wall, plus see how exploring different foods brings a great experience into your journey. We will end our Asia Continent Study with trying out more food, learning the flags, animals, experiencing the culture, and so much more. Is your Asia continent box ready? If not don’t worry, because you can pick up tons of ideas and printables right here.

Montessori Inspired Asia Continent Study
Learning the flags is a must for us geography buffs 😉 Plus we were able to get a few brochures and a daily newspaper, how cool is that?!
A few of our pictures are blurry, I apologize about that I was using a terrible camera. I just really wanted to include the pictures anyways so you could get a feel for everything that we did. I hope you enjoy this wonderful Asia Continent study.
Sushi and chopsticks were a must. It’s one of my favorites so I wanted them to try it and guess what? They Love it!
They really enjoy geography and looking at all of the different flags.
Little Passportsis a big part of our around the world learning. The kids are so excited each month to get a new kit in the mail and see where they are going next. You can also check out the Early Explorers program that they have for ages 3-5 (I use it with my 2 year old and she loves it). If you are interested in learning more about Early Explorers, you can find more great information by clicking here.
The boys practiced origami and decided they liked it a lot, but it wasn’t as easy as they thought it would be. The origami kit also came in their Asia Little Passports Kit. See why we love Little Passports?! It makes life easy for mom and fun for kids.
We looked through some of our clothes to see where they were made. We also looked at some of the food we had and checked out this cool stamp from Indonesia. You can easily set aside several pieces of clothing in a basket for inspection. Kids can learn a lot by just checking out tags for things around the house. Where was it made? What kind of writing is on it?
Sorry for this blurry picture but I didn’t have another one and I really wanted you to get a feel for all of the things in our continent box. We had postcards, fans, chopsticks, magnets, cookies and candies (all from a care package sent from a sweet family I met online).
The map that is shown in our pictures is also from Little Passports. It hangs in our schooling room all of the time and is used daily.
Lastly we ended our unit with Asia Animal Matching. My kids love animals so anytime they get new animals and can learn about the animals they love it. The older boys first looked up each animal online and read about them, sharing important facts with us. I did a lesson with Little B and Bells for the animal cards and animal matching. This is always such a fun activity.
