Students in Grades 1st through 5th have the opportunity to explore the world through our Continent Club. This is an individualized, sequential geography program designed to help students learn some or all of the world’s countries over the course of a school year. Each student receives a passport, chooses an individual level of study and collects postage stamps for learning the world’s countries and geographic features. This is a parent-run, PTC funded, non-profit geography program.
Studying the maps each month occurs at home. There may be some studying during Technology through fun, interactive games or in the school library via books related to the country for the month. Each month on Check Day students will show a volunteer the countries that they learned. Volunteers are parents who encourage all students to the best of their ability.

Support Continent Club!
Help your child get prepared for Continent Club Check Day. Practice with your child at home – a few minutes a couple times a week is all you need.
There are many ways to learn such as:
- 1:1 with your child associating shapes of the countries. Example: Italy looks like a boot.
- Stack the countries game on iTunes
- I like 2 learn
- Sheppard software
We need lots of volunteers on Quiz Day. Continent Club quiz days are on Wednesdays from 8:45am – 10:45am.
