My Place in the World Geography Craft Review

Young children are incredibly interested in their place in the world around them. Excellerations My Place in the World craft kit places the child's self portrait at the very center while teaching about locations in increasing size from that point.

We've touched on geography in our homeschool preschool program by studying the solar system and collecting postcards from around the world. 



When Discount School Supply sent us Excellerations My Place in the World Craft Kit our preschooler was excited to get started! The first thing we did was glue the included labels on each cardstock circle. While working we discussed the different locations on the cards.



The most defined point in the craft kit is ME! After all, which kid doesn't think the universe revolves around them, right? While the children draw their self portrait you can begin discussing where they live. 


Next the children draw their own homes and their town. You may label with your town name if you'd like. The My Place in the World Craft Kit provides the perfect frame for your child's artwork.


The larger locations are provided on reproducible sheets provided in the My Place in the World Craft Kit . We copied and cut out our solar system, planet, continent, country, and state.



Our preschooler E was so entralled with this project that she dedicated much time and detail to her work. She even asked that the individual planets looked like so she could color them accurately. We used our tablet to provide her with an image as a model.


Once all of the parts were complete E put her flip book together. The My Place in the World Craft Kit  provides plastic rings to create a keepsake that is durable enough to last through plenty of study.


If we would have attempted to create this educational geography project ourselves from scratch we would have spent so much time measuring and cutting out the pieces. My Place in the World Craft Kit completes the busy work for you providing a colorful, ready to go project that engages the child's interest while personalizing it on their level.


Discount School Supply provided us with Excellerations My Place in the World Learning Craft Kid for writing this review but, as always, all words and enthusiasm are 100% our own!
