Giveaway: Discover Africa!


I see a lot of homeschool resources available online, so it’s not often that I get as excited about a download as I am about Discover Africa! When Jessica at Balancing Everything couldn’t find a unit available online that included all of the countries in Africa, she put together this mega download that covers all 54 (as of this writing) countries on the continent. I’m very excited to use this unit in our 9th grade geography course this year, but it’s not limited to high school. The unit is flexible enough to be used with all ages.

  • An area to paste in included color photos showing what the people look like and what they wear.
  • Places to record population, capital city, terrain, government, currency, major religion(s), industry, agriculture, landmarks, and whether or not the country is at war or peace. (All but 3 of these will be filled in on the mostly-filled-in sheets).
  • A box to list interesting things about the culture, cuisine, or other interesting facts (this is filled in with some additional space left on the mostly-filled-in sheets).
  • Finally, there is a spot to list the page number, and the region of Africa the country is located in.

Discover Africa! includes:

  • A 19 page Resource and Instruction Guide to help you get started. It’s packed full of helpful suggestions, recommended books, and directions for printing and organizing the PDF printables.
  • A file containing 54 single / individual beautifully designed, blank notebooking pages for each country in Africa in PDF format.
  • A file containing 54 single / individual mostly-filled-out PDF notebooking pages for use in a homeschool co-op / classroom setting, or for use with younger children. These pages have most of the areas filled in, but still leave areas of activity for the students.
  • A file containing outline maps of the continent of Africa, Africa with countries defined, and individual maps of each country.
  • PLUS more files containing the single notebooking and map PDFs merged together so you can print one big book all at once. Both styles (blank & filled out) are included.
  • A 7 page file containing all 54 African flags – use these as a color guide when the children color in the flag on the notebooking pages, or shrink them down for use in passports (instructions to make or buy passports is in the Resource Guide).
  • A 6 page file packed with beautiful thumbnail photos for children to paste on their notebooking pages. Photos show a wide variety of African peoples in their traditional, ceremonial, or every day dress. Photographers are listed in the Resource Guide with their URLs so your family can explore more of their pictures.

To enter: Entering to win Discover Africa! is easy. Just post a link to any page on on Facebook, Twitter, and/or your blog/website. You can link to this page and spread the word about the discount code, or you can link to any other page on our site. Each link you post is an entry, so for each link, leave a comment on this post. Example – if you post a link on your Facebook page and link to us on your blog, that is two entries so you should leave two separate comments below. If you have multiple blogs, you can get more entries by linking on each one. It’s important that you leave a comment for each link because each individual comment will be your entry, so if you linked to us 3 times but only left one comment letting us know about the 3 links, you are only entered once.

That’s it – just link to us then comment below for each link. Good luck!
