Monthly Teacher Resources – March/April 2020

Welcome to Great Britain


During the age of exploration, sailors set sail from England hoping to find more trade routes and people to exchange goods with, instead they found many different types of civilizations and people. During these times, it was common for english sailors to take over the land of other people which they encountered. The British Empire ruled in many countries around the world as well as fought in many wars.


We hope the information below is helpful, insuring, and exciting for your use during the British cultural cycle from March 1-April 30th. Please use these materials as a starting point for ideas, and present each material at least once during cycle time during these two months.

3-Part Card Printouts

The British 3-part card packets help children find order in their world. First introduce one category alone for naming. Then, mix with other categories for sorting, comparing, and contrasting. Have children try matching on their own. After several turns, try asking “where is…”. Then, ask them “what is this…?”
