It can be printed and used as a book to aid student research. You will also find 4 questions at the bottom of the slideshow that can be used to review the information students have learned.

This PDF file is not editable. This slideshow can be opened in the TPT Education software to add, delete or modify pages. For your students, I created a free EASEL activity that they can use to answer questions, highlight and circle important points, and write about the lessons they learned.

These books are loved by my students. These books help me introduce a country to my students each month. The pictures are very appealing to the students. The words are clear, concise and not too childish.

This resource was used for a Trip Around the World project. The resource was great and the students loved learning all about Australia.
