Show Notes

God’s Word tells us that the earth belongs to Him and all the people who live in it (Psalm 24:1) and Jesus told us to make disciples of all nations starting right where we are and moving across the entire world (Matthew 28:19 and Acts 1:8). Best of all, He loves all the people in the entire world so much that He sent Jesus so anyone who believes in Him will have everlasting life! (John 3:16). That’s exciting!

As a homeschool mom, I want to teach my children about the world God made and loves. If God calls them to go to Calcutta to share the Gospel, I want them to know where it is!

Little Ones Map Continents & Oceans

Start with blank outline maps of the entire world. Give children crayons or let them dictate names of the continents and the oceans.
