World Geography is definitely not my favorite subject. I love to read and learn about different countries, but I am terrible at the actual geography. However, what I do remember is that Finland is in the Northern European region. But beyond that, I’m lost.
The one thing I do know about Finland is that all the pictures I see are beautiful. From the sunsets to the architecture, I love the culture. I am fascinated with languages and Finnish is one that is complicated, yet beautiful. I love the sound of it when spoken.
In this study your students will be introduced to Finnish (links and flashcards provided), different maps of the country to label waterways/rivers, regions, main cities, fact files, as well as notebooking pages for recording other geographical & government facts.
While this is not a complete unit study on Finland, I think simply adding some additional reading resources and possible a recipe or two and you will cover just about every subject.

If you’re like me, you’re probably worried about knowing how to say the correct pronunciation of the alphabet. Have no fear! I have included links to videos in the unit to help you get a feel for the pronounciation. I found a couple of really good videos to help with the basic alphabet (vowels and consonants). In addition, there are also videos that will teach you some basic phrases.
