  1. This is so wonderful! Thank you for sharing! I am currently a grad student in elementary education, and I'm working with 3rd graders on Continents and Oceans. I love all your resources and ideas!

  2. Hi there! I just ran across your It's a Small World Continent Study on Pinterest and I love it!!!! How do I get it? The only thing I can print is the word search at the end. Everything else will only let me "Pin It"…which I did do =)
