Kids often have a hard time remembering which is the city, state, country, etc. Here's a fun visual to help kids remember. Create round shapes that progressively get larger, starting with school, then street, city, state, country, continent, and planet. Kids can draw a picture, or color a photocopy to place on the circle and label each. For more details, visit: www.finallyinfirst.blogspot.com.

What better way to learn about the world than to communicate with people living there? Check out www.postcrossing.com and sign up to receive postcards from all over the world.
All you do is sign up on this free website and you will be given an address in another country to send a postcard. You add your special code on it and when they get it, they will enter your code into the system and someone else sends you a postcard.
A fun way to make this more exciting is to get a wall map and let your kids use pins to mark the spot each postcard comes from. Then, start a memory box to keep all the postcards in.
