2 - 8
This animated adventure and extensive print package teaches children about the basic geography of planet Earth. Using engaging animation and computer graphics children explore concepts such as; How tall is a mountain? How deep is the ocean? How big is a mile? How big is the United States? Why is "up" always "North" on a map? How far away is Australia? What are longitude and latitude and why are there different time zones?

The DVD begins by introducing an engaging, cartoon character who serves as a tour guide to understanding the concepts of neighborhood, town, community, state, country, continent, and planet. Children quickly grasp that there are six continents (Eurasia combines what used to be Europe and Asia) and also that the Earth is made up of over 70 percent water.

The Earth's motion around the sun is illustrated, the seasons are described and the imaginary lines of longitude and latitude are clearly depicted. Students are also introduced to famous landmarks such as Angels Falls, The Great Barrier Reef, Antarctica, Paris, the Grand Canyon, the Nile River, the Sahara Desert, Mount Everest and their locations. A 75-page teacher's resource book accompanies the DVD with numerous activity sheets, quizzes and challenges that both reinforce and expand the visual lessons.

Includes: DVD and Teacher's Resource Book
