Introduction to Hands-On Asia

Adaptable for Grades 2 – 12

Hands-On Asia is a fun notebooking project that helps history and geography students learn the countries of Asia. The Hands-On Asia e-book contains 49 sets of notebooking pages, one for each of 49 countries of Asia. Each set invites students to:

  • Research key geographical data for each country, along with fascinating facts about the national flag, notable citizens and more

  • Write in their own words what they learn.

  • Illustrate what they learn with pictures of state symbols.

  • Present what they learn in well-organized, keepsake notebooks.

Each set of notebooking pages is custom-designed for its particular country, with pictures of the national flag, national symbols and more.

The project book also includes an answer key. If the resources available to your students don't provide the answers they need, then you can always turn to the answer key for help.

Hands-on Asia contains three pages per country, each more detailed than the last. This arrangement allows parents and teachers to tailor notebooking projects for students of different grade levels, according to these suggestions:

  1. Students in grades 2 – 4 might complete only the first page. Page one covers basic details about each country, including its capital, system of government, major ethnic groups, religions and more.

  2. Students in grades 4 – 8 might complete the first two pages. Page two adds details about national symbols.

  3. Students in grades 8 – 12 might complete all three pages. The third page asks students to research and write brief reports on each country’s history and geography.

Parents and teachers who are following BiblioPlan can use Hands-On Asia as a supplement to Year One, which divides Asia as follows:

  1. Unit One covers 15 countries of the Middle East/Southwest Asia.
  2. Unit Two covers 8 countries of South Asia.
  3. Unit Three covers 9 countries of Central Asia.
  4. Unit Four covers 6 countries of East Asia.
  5. Unit Five covers 11 countries of Southeast Asia.

A chart lists which country or countries go with which BiblioPlan week.

Those who aren’t following BiblioPlan can still use Hands-On Asia to teach the countries of Asia, in any order and on any time schedule they choose.

For parents and teachers who wish to test how much their students have learned, Hands-on Asia also contains an exam.
