Hola! Bon Jour! Greetings from EPCOT. I actually began my teaching career in central Florida (specifically Winter Park and Sanford if any of you are from the area) and one of my favorite things to do on the weekend was stroll through the countries in EPCOT. It’s a wonderful way to get a sampling of the sights, sounds, and tastes of places I will most likely never really get to visit.

In keeping with the theme of EPCOT, today’s new product is a fun little booklet that will enable your students to explore, research and learn about different parts of the world. I designed it to be open-ended so that it could be used at multiple grade levels and in a manner that best fits the needs and interests of your students. I created it in color, but it prints and copies beautifully in black and white.
Each page has a space to write the name and capital of the country, draw it’s flag and record interesting facts. There is an included page (sans clipart) for students to select their own countries. If you want to mix and match the pages you might opt to have them draw in a child in clothing specific to the country they are studying. Feel free to leave the project open-ended or require them to find and add details such as capital, population, exports, language, foods, etc
This packet would also be great in conjuction with the Disney Travel Journal Freebie. You could send a blank copy of this home with families who have requested work to take with them on vacation. The kids could interview Cast Members at EPCOT and record what they’ve learned from visiting the countries in the World Showcase.
And since we are in EPCOT today you might be interested in checking out my posts about Space-Themed Classrooms, my Shoot for the Moon Bulletin Board and Writing Packet or my Me on the Map packetfor a look at a student’s own country.
