We have studied so much about it and quite extensively, in some cases.

Country Flags of the World
We have been studying thoroughly about Geography and countries of the world over the years. It is one of our top subjects.
The around the world flags printable combines perfectly with this set!
And we have also gone to a slightly different tangent for several days.
We delved into an Earth Science mystery: the difference between weathering and erosion.
We learned about animals that live specifically in North America as well.
I am ecstatic to say that we have a printable of North America country flags for kids to connect with this set.
You can download it whenever you desire.
On the back of the map, you can see the flag “key,” where you see the flags and the country name.
It is the perfect Montessori flags of the world activity!
We studied those and, by peering in our flags book, we determined which continent each country is located.
It will blow your mind when your children impress you with this kind of knowledge.
World Country Flags for Kids
We took note of the countries and the continents to which they belong to. And next, we tried to memorize each flag.
Honestly, we did our best.
Very carefully, we observed each flag closely, we talked about things and details that stood out on each flag and discussed which country each flag belongs to.
Also, we filled out a quick quiz where we had two sets of flags; we went through each flag and if we could name of the flag’s country, we would place it to the left and if we couldn’t remember, we would place it on the right.
We studied the flags on the right a bit more.
There are some educational videos that can also help wit this part.
Montessori at Home Fun Geography Lesson
Ok, we felt like we were getting close to learning them all.
Next, we placed each flag by its country.
Our note on the continents each county was located helped a lot.
Our flag book is divided by continent, so, if we knew the country and continent, but we couldn’t remember where the country was within that continent, then we would look in the book.
I know it sounds like it was thorough and time-consuming work, but believe me, both my children were engaged, intrigued and excited to make their discoveries.
The key was to provide them with everything they needed and then sit back and watch.
I wasn’t leading, I was simply giving the initial instructions and then let them go for it.
What do you think? Would your children enjoy this kind of lesson?
Would you go a step further and include more lessons to expand their Geography knowledge?
Here, you can get your free printables on The 7 Continents, Around the World & World Landmarks, Coins of the World and also a set of Flags of the World.
You can do a matching activity, an i-spy game and even a “guess who?” game.
It is so much fun. So you don’t feel lost, I will include links to posts that you might find helpful at the end of this post.
Also, take a look at some awesome materials we have also used in our homeschool and that have been recommended to us by homeschooling friends.
