I have been using Our World Explorers as an individual program during Extra English language lessons with students in Grade 3 and 4. “Vicky and Patti Explore the World” is the book with comic stories and activities for children who love discovering the wonders of our world. While reading the stories students compared the information and knowledge they already had, learned and discovered important but also fun facts about nature. At the end of each section they checked the essential words in the chapter’s glossary which helped them to get familiar with difficult or unknown words and expressions. The book also contains various activities for the students to complete related to each chapter, such as find the differences and similarities, cross the odd word out, put the names in the correct space etc. The students loved using the stickers provided for the activities and particularly playing memory game provided with the course! As a form of revision after each chapter the students completed a quiz. The course includes slideshow presentations, flashcards and audio materials which allowed us effortlessly to continue with the nature adventure during on-line learning! So far it has been a great journey for the students but also for myself as a teacher – we do hope to continue with the course in the next school year.

BOOK Vicky and Patti Explore the world
“Vicky and Patti explore the world" is a great fun story for my girls to enjoy and learn about US National Parks. This book is full of fun colors and fantastic artwork. You will be able to explore through the forest of Yellowstone to the fresh waters at Niagara Falls State Park and everything in between. Explores club provides many details while keeping children engaged and interested in more to come through the entire book. With vibrant colors and packed full of information, this book is excellent for elementary-aged kids into jr high school. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun way to learn more about the places around them"

"A very interesting book that explores 8 specific regions of the earth. Each story is short, to the point, and provides a wealth of information about that particular region. The book has enough curiosity to hold young minds. Comic book style pictures make the stories come alive. Overall vocabulary is simple and easy to follow. New words and ideas are introduced and explained for each story. This helps the reader to understand and remember the region learned. At the end of each story are questions, matching pictures with words, and a compare and contrast section. This not only helps the reader understand the concepts and ideas learned earlier but reinforces them. This creates a greater understanding of that particular region. The fun facts help learn something new and unique about the particular region. The answer key at the end of the book is helpful in checking the answers. Of course, the stickers are a bonus. Overall a very educational and interesting book. It provides kids with valuable information that is easy to follow and remember.
