North America: The Global Explorer’s Journal

The Global Explorer’s Journal for North America


Dive deep into North America and empower your child to lead their learning journey by researching and recording information for each country with these explorer’s journal sheets.

Thoughtfully designed to foster a love of learning and cultural appreciation, these journal sheets cover geography, culture, natural sciences, and artistic expression in one comprehensive package.

Whether you’re a homeschooling family, an educator, or a lifelong learner, the Global Explorer’s Journal offers a hands-on approach to learning about North America. Let the adventure begin!

The Global Explorer’s Journal for North America includes the following countries: Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Panama, Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, Dominican Republic, and Saint Lucia as well as Puerto Rico, a territory of the United States.

You can choose to print each country’s explorer’s journal double-sided or separately. I recommend using a 32 lb. paper if students will be using pen and/or markers in their journal.

Each North American country is represented on individual journal sheets. These pages guide students to research and record information about a specific country.
