What are the top 20 World Landmarks? I’ve selected a number of famous buildings from around the world and created a set of Montessori 3-Part Cards.
When we start back to school, we will be jump back in with some important geography facts… the largest countries, the countries with the largest population, the world’s largest cities… and more. We’ll also go over some of the impressive buildings of the world.
I made this set of Montessori 3-Part cards of some of the famous world landmarks to go along with our mini-unit. These cards are free to download! We are going over some basic world facts and I made these cards to help the kids (particularly my youngest, ED) learn the names of these famous buildings. There are no U.S. landmark cards in this set because I made another set of Montessori cards some time back that highlight some famous US symbols and landmarks (which are also free here on the blog). The cards in this set include:
- Machu Picchu
- Sydney Opera House
- Taj Mahal
- Great Wall of China
- Chichén Itzá
- Hagia Sophia
- Palace of Versailles
- and more… There are 22 cards total.

World Facts Packet – (70+ pages) Do your kids know the 4 largest countries? Which countries have the most people? The longest river? the largest cities? the most well-known world landmarks? This packet covers basic world and U.S. facts. We often started out the semester with a review of this material. 🙂
The second part of the World Facts Packet covers geography land form & geographic feature terms from lakes, islands and peninsulas to the difference between bays, gulfs and sounds or between deltas & estuaries. Students will also study the deserts of the world. Plus, it also includes a brief study of topographic maps. Quick Preview for the World Facts Packet
We also have a packet I made for the Civics and Government Unit that we did last spring which includes worksheets on the 3 branches of government, the structure of state governments, the presidential cabinet, how taxes work and also a set of civics review cards (which include questions about government and history like: What are the first 10 amendments called? Why was the Declaration of Independence written? etc). Find out more here: Civics and Government Unit
