Pretent Printable Passports

Here is a return to a favourite printable, the pretend passports for fun in geography studies. Place a sticker or stamp with the country name on each page after studying a country of the world.

Co-op Group Activity: 
Plan a Geography Fair with your co-op group. Each family chooses a country to present.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. 
Catch the trade winds in your sails. 
Explore. Dream. Discover.”
