Perfect for the K-4th grade homeschool, co-op, or small classroom, these units are from the complete Let's Go Geography curriculum. Start with coloring the flag and gluing it on the included flag/map page. Then find the country on a continent map and answer questions. Explore with video links &/or recommended library books, and look at the Scrapbook pages for more pictures. Write about it on the decorated writing page, color the themed coloring page, &/or make the Featured Craft (with standard craft or household supplies). This is hands-on learning at its finest.

Sweden is home to the Ice Hotel, which is completely rebuilt every year so it can stay open for 3 months before it melts again.

Let’s Go to Sweden!
