Asia Unit with Free Printables

Asia is a big continent to tackle in a single unit study.  There is so much to cover.  Perhaps this is why I've procrastinated our Asia Unit for so long.  But at last, it is finally here with free printables and everything.

You'll note that for a few activities we focus on individual countries, but for the most part we're focusing on regions or larger concepts of Asian culture.  This has proven to be the perfect way to introduce the kiddos to the continent as a whole.

Countries of Asia Syllable Counting Activity
Countries of Asia syllable counting activity with free printable.
As with most of our continent units (exceptions being Antarctica and Australia), we've created syllable cards for each of the countries in Asia with more than one syllable.  We do this to help the kiddos learn to pronounce the names of each country.  Breaking names down into syllables does wonders!

The kiddos have been just a tad obsessed with learning how to use chopsticks lately, so it only seemed natural to include an activity where they can practice.  They've definitely enjoyed it.

  1. Hello Renae,

    Glad the children are learning to use chopsticks. I am doing that this year too.

    And also which hand you use when you do something like eat or drink is interesting. That ties in with the religion part.
